Visual Poetry

I have synaesthesia, which means that I blend senses together. In my case it is colour and text, and sometimes sound and colour. My particular form is called grapheme synaesthesia. This is one reason why I enjoy playing around with text in smaller units than the word. Here are a few places where you can find my attempts at visual poetry & below the links, you will find recent work, which i post on my visual poetry blog.

latest visual poetry chapbook is "une semaine dans la vie de l'alphabet" published in Puddles of Sky Press'  "Illiterature, Issue 3: a journal of minimalist poetry"

In 2012, my visual poetry was published in the Last Vispo Anthology by Fantagraphics.

Gary Barwin included a talk and interview with me about my visual poetry in his Jacket2 feature, Languageye.
