Building and Toppling

via S M Johnson's minus1 plus6:

In working with words I use a computer script (using Python) which outputs a number of images, based upon a source text and applies a variety of algorithmic mechanisms, that I may then select from, fine tune, and blend with other images.

via Richard Lopez' Really Bad Movies:

one of hansen's specialties is mimeo-era poets and poetry, poets such as d. a. levy, tom kryss et al. so there was a levy celebration a couple of months ago at hansen's bookstore, the book collector. for the occassion a local poet's press, polymer grove, published two beautifully designed chaps of levy's work. i devoured the collection miniConcrete, which contains some of levy's vispo and concrete work.
