Chop Chop Poem by Vizma Bruns

The stunning opening to the Shotpo Gallery has confirmed that Minxus has a long standing interest in all forms of poetry.

Here is a fine example of reshuffled text by Vizma Bruns. Enjoy!

Girl! Girl! You in the red dress!

Looks like a lady, talks like a camp follower,

I heard you the first time

Don’t your Voices tell you what to do?

Ten thousand she-devils fly away with you!

How long will that take?

Didn’t they teach you anything

I want to know what happens next

The rose garden is on the far side of the orchard,

Now, what do you say to that?

Perhaps we could come to an arrangement,

Does it matter,

I told you I was going to sleep

Documentation (Part I): MinXus-Lynxus Shooting Gallery Project with Ficus strangulensis (West Virginia, USA)

“Shotpo” by Ficus strangulensis (West Virginia, USA) using visual poem by Empress Marie Antonette (aka – Marie Wintzer, Japan)

The MinXus-Lynxus Shooting Gallery Project has been completed with the return of “Shotpo” compositions from Ficus strangulensis to MinXus USA, Overlook Hotel. We believe the results are stunning and represent the completion of a successful experiment that has great implications for artists and writers.

We sent Ficus work by Empress Marie, Trashpo by Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA), and a William Shakespeare sonnet target-formatted for precision text editing and spontaneous holistic composition.

Documentation and analysis will be covered in a series of blogs. The piece above shows a beautiful action-art, Holism-based reworking of Empress Marie’s classic visual poem. The pieces returned show a consistent energy field form of composition with areas of high density hole concentration. Targets reveal highly organic Shotpo prosody structures:

The Ficus strangulensis method of spontaneous composition produced a highly refined Holism:

Dean Marks throws a punch and makes Holism history

We were in for a great surprise the other day at the Manoir when we received this wonderful book from our favorite Artiste en Seine, sent in good Dean Marks tradition without an envelope, of course.

Dean is the first one to send something back for the hole mail art call. The piece of paper I have sent him for his hole homework was a picture of a sardine with apple taken from an old Japanese magazine. Making one hole was not good enough for Dean so he went and made a whole book out of it! This is much more than I could have wished for and provides the perfect opening to the Catalog of Holism.

So in Paris one can find Holism Punches at the market? What a dream of a city…

Catalog of Holism… we are not on the same page. Oh yes we are! We are on both sides of the same page and I can see you through the hole in it.
Dean, thanks a million for sending this wonderful book!!
