Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: 3-D Asemic Poem by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)


Mail art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Richard C has long experimented with the non-traditional poetic forms that are permanent fixtures and that, in fact, thrive in the mail art network. These forms include minimalist, concrete, haptic and visual poetry as well as object poetry. Richard Canard has made fascinating contributions in all these genres. Trashpo and asemics are more recent additions. I am including this asemic/object poem by Richard C in the Karnival of Trash for reasons that I believe are fairly obvious. The trashpoets will surely claim it as their own. Perhaps it is Trashemic.


Ruud Janssen (Netherlands) has been making interesting and innovative creations with his 3-d pen. If we are to take Richard C at face value, the asemic poem was composed with that 3-d pen. This is a tremendous concept indeed. Who knows where it might lead?







Thanks as ever to Richard!
