Asemic writing is wordless open semantic form of writing without the smallest unit of meaning. We prefer to view asemic writing as an expression of a personal inner language, one perhaps even the maker cannot translate cognitively. In this workshop, we will experiment with various approaches to asemic writing both large and small, and address ways to incorporate the writing into our work.

We will focus on the discovery and development of our inner language or “alphabet” through body movement and free guesture, explore poetic and other forms of asemic writing. Ultimately we will take our alphabet, break it apart, and explore different approaches of expressing the writing in encaustic form via monotypes and painting abstractions using various tools paired with techniques developed by Amanda and Becky.
