wordless writing

wordless writing

asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means “having no specific semantic content”, or “without the smallest unit of meaning.” in other words, it is the form of writing without the content. but it also has to look enough like traditional writing so as not to be confused with abstract visual art. after that, it is up to the “reader” to supply whatever meaning or connections there might be in the shapes that are not exactly writing but not exactly art, but hint in certain ways at both. i don’t particularly like ending posts with leading questions, like “what do you see here?” because i think that trope has been exhausted on a zillion clickbait instagram posts. but if you think this qualifies as asemic writing, or is simply a composed abstraction, i’d be interested. winter stems trying not to say something

    This very much reminds me of Byzantine musical notation; something still used in Greek and Antiochian Orthodox churches. (http://www.hcsri.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Byzantine-music-notation.png)
