The Language Signifier - Visual Writing and Ecologies of Dimensionality by Tom Hibbard

"... we must remember that “visual writing,” the basic subject of discussion in this collection of reviews, does not per se contain or represent specific writings or specific texts. Visual writing and visual poetry demonstrate the way language works, the characteristic attributes of its generative substantiveness—its unblemished patterns, its many structures—its dominion, its universality. The politics and antiquated modalities of colonialism and subjugation are removed from the very conception and constitution of language structure and political and economic activity: permitting “even triviality in discourse, commonplaces, redundancy, intelligibility...” ... Visual writing and visual poetry make use of the implicit semantic field as one in which “fragmentation” and ambiguity present truthful if tenuous patterns and universes of possibility that contain “both illusion and reality.” -Tom Hibbard

Magnetic Poems

From Luna Bisonte Prods

These clean, crisp-looking visual poems stand in contrast to Matthew Stolte's recent work which makes much use of smeared paint and ink, partial forms, layerings, and other devices to create a veritable storm of lettristic forms and words. In these Magnetic Poems the colorful letter-forms are stable as found, and merely arranged on galvanized metal sheets. There is, however, an inherent instability in the original pieces, in that anyone could move the magnetic letters around. So this book can be seen as a moment stopped in time, as these pieces no doubt look different today. Because even moving them around is likely to jostle their arrangement. Thus this book is a talisman to the inherent protean nature of poetry and of the language of which it is made. -John M. Bennett
