is computer coded in LaTex: the whole book is a macro-code which is shaped once distilled and printed. Both texts are at the opposite ends of the asemic spectrum as far as how they were written, but they have a similar spirit to them, secret and illegible yet still maintaining their aesthetic allure. I highly recommend these books for deep reading during the winter months (summer for you southern hemisphere people). Like all asemic books, they can be enjoyed and studied for a lifetime or casually perused in an afternoon.

In January 2017, O Mayeux wrote a computer program to dismantle all the poetry he has ever written, to tear it apart at its seams, to stitch its syntax into itself. What remains are these Artefacts, a cycle of asemic poetry. The abstract erotic narrative threaded through these poems is a delicate lament for the fragility of semantics, a tale of how we all remain unreadable to each other.
O Mayeux (http://4f4d.xyz/) is an artist and linguist.
