Higgins recognized this – he was perhaps as strong a critic as an artist – and in 1964, he coined the term "intermedia" to describe what he & his fellow Fluxus artists were doing: going between media, taking aspects from established forms to create new ones. An example of this might be visual, or concrete poetry, of which that of Jackson Mac Low or Ian Hamilton Finlay – both of whom Higgins published – might be taken as representative.

So, because haiku is one of the main subjects of this blog, and because I've devoted several entries to the pond haiku, I thought I'd post it. It's pretty simple to solve. Just think ripples.

Guerilla Vispo

via Serkan IŞIN at zinhar:

Visual Poetry is the probability of the impossible. It is not a some kind of "trick" that has been stolen from the Master's studio or some kind of "techique" learned from the poets. While holding uncompromising sides of "litterature", visual poetry promises us some kind of "can-not-be-written or spoken" mixed with "can-not-be-drawn-or-shown".
