Something with faded words on it that you can hardly read any more. Something like this: Now in order to achieve this, you start with a background texture (which I had from this mornings wonderworlds trip with the micro-camera) and then you add a structure to it. In this case, the structure was to be words. So when I came to make this structure, instead of just typing random letters, I found myself writing a hypnodream poem which would be on the page even though you wouldn't be able to read it.

Not anti-semitic writing, dummy, writing. Har har. But seriously, I’m digging on both these things today. First, the idea of asemia , or more specifically of asemic writing as it pertains to art which, despite my proclivities for this type of thing, I’d never heard of before (so thanks, Bruce Sterling !).

It makes sense that artist Zane Peach is from Northern California. First of all, his name -- Zane Peach -- is totally a Northern California name, hinting at hippie parents. Then comes his easygoing, conversational style, not rushed, frantic or forceful: the very soul of mellow.
