Coldfront Magazine – Singular Vispo

over mijn kennismaking met visuele poëzie en het werk van Andrew Topel, Coldfront Magazine, november 2015.

Was there an experience, a specific interaction with visual poetry that infected your brain, made you see language differently or drew you toward exploring vispo further? Is there a vispoem that captured your imagination. What piece first awakened in you the possibility of a visual alphabet/language alternative?

The Future Is Here Again – NY

groepstentoonstelling in AC Institute, New York, 22 januari – 7 februari 2015.

dsc00844fixed100-1024x595The intent of this exhibition is to share the various ways that text can transform into something far removed from the literal. Some contributors approach the work as poets, others as artists, yet each uses text, words, and gestural marks as compositional elements. In addition, their investigations playfully combine humor and wit, calligraphy and letters, participation and poetry, social commentary and linguistic ambiguity.
