A few days to catch up on...

srhed  (Thanks to my coworker Brittney Houchins for catching this. It's similar to the broken signs of Hamilton pwoermds from last year.)

==============

This piece is comprised entirely of pwoermds, which might negate the pwoermd-ness, the pwoermd-ity of the individual pwoermds. But these pwoermds seemed to have minds, or a mind, of their own once I started scribbling them down one afternoon during a meeting. This is as close as I've come to an experience of automatic writing or being visited by the Martians Jack Spicer liked to talk about. I don't know where the title came from, though it came first, and the rest of the pwoermds pretty much followed in order. Who knows? I've written a few pieces in this style, which I posted earlier this month, but this is the only one that I can say occurred on its own, uncontrived and unexpected.

Two Spanish-language-influenced pwoermds. My family and I were in Cancun in December, and it's interesting to be in a place where the color schemes are so different than what we're used to. Other than converting the HIELLO jpg to black-and-white, and perhaps pretentiously photographing it on page 81 of Ulysses, in which it had been placed for convenience (not to mention using that novel to hold odd papers for convenience in the first place), I didn't manipulate these pwoermds digitally. Both pieces today are cut out of scrap paper. Scrap paper is a wonderful thing to find.

"Nuages." Would they were. I direct your attention to the pieces of tape visible in the top and bottom of the single "clouds." It is possible to create images that look like poorly Photoshopped images without using Photoshop! However, the second image looks like a poorly Photoshopped image because it is a poorly Photoshopped image. I'm versatile, is what I'm getting at.

I'm curious how this will go over. Last fall, I was scribbling away one afternoon in a meeting, and found I was writing pwoermds that seemed to like each other, which then developed into lines or linked thoughts, and started carrying on as if they had a will of their own. It's the closest I've come to "automatic writing" or being visited by the Martians that Jack Spicer liked to entertain. The first one I wrote is called "Cleo's Green Again." But for today, I'd like to show one from mid-March. It started with a handful of words that served as "notes," both in the sense of written words intended to trigger images or other ideas and, if I can say this without sounding pretentious, in the sense of musical notes--a scale or a chord progression. Below the piece are some additional notes (in some cases I merely needed to be able to remember how to spell a source word that was turning into a pwoermd) and ideas that came up while I was working on the linked pwoermds. I include it all here:


sun
air
breeze
puddle
mud
wet &
earth
scent
down feathers
white rings
