Marco Giovenale
asemic writing and digital art brut

Here are three little series of images. Two from the path of the asemic writing experiments, and one from some sort of digital art brut I am recently dealing with (after having dealt with the ink-and-pen classical art brut for several years, especially in the 90s). The series called 6 drawings is made of this kind of works, in a definitely naive way of drawing. I usually draw tiny creatures struggling for their own meaning.
On the other hand, the asemic series I drawrite are all made of indecipherable and unreadable glyphs and unknown alphabets. The glyphicle gif shows the metamorphosis of the glyphs and letters themselves. The explanatory notebook seems to give important informations about a number of objects and beings which are completely out of reach. Just like ...an abstract way of writing.
