MinXus Mail Bag: Asemic Writing by Henry Denander (Stockholm, Sweden)

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 1

Mail art by Henry Denander (Stockholm, Sweden)

We are thrilled to have received a second missive from Henry Denander. The first mail art he sent us is documented on MinXus-LynXus II:


This time he sent us what we are reasonably sure is intentional asemic writing. Cursive writing is a fading art/practice and thus becoming harder and harder for the modern, digital mind to read. We have tried hard to read this piece by Henry Denander in the conventional way, and we can only identify a few words and numerals. He has been sending out mail out work that is being identified as asemic, although we also find other examples online that are incomprehensible to us but apparently legible to others. We would appreciate any feedback. Otherwise, we offer this as an excellent example of what we call purist asemic writing. The card arrived in this envelope:

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 2

And the reverse:

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 3

Many thanks to Henry Denander!
