MinXus Mail Bag: Asemic Glasses & Much More from meeah williams (Brooklyn, New York, USA)

Mail-art (asemic eyeglasses) by meeah williams (Brooklyn, New York, USA)

Our faithful Brooklyn correspondent – meeah williams – sent us an extraordinary package with an asemic theme that includes designer asemic eyewear, two gorgeous vispo-asemic compositions and a boekie.

Either meeah is responding to the Google glasses craze (aka glassholes) or she did some research into the pre-MinXus Era. During the heyday of the Martha Stuart School of Asemic Wallpaper (circa 2011) participants proposed all kinds of asemic consumer products. These included asemic wallpaper (of course), asemic gas, asemic furniture, asemic clothing and, yes, asemic goggles or glasses.  The chronicles of the Martha Stuart School of Asemic Wallpaper can be found here:

Few of these inventions were ever produced. A few that did had serious defects and were discontinued. For instance, the great genius De Villo Sloan created asemic glasses for Diane Keys (Illinois, USA). Sadly, the experiment was a failure as you can see due to a bizarre chemical mishap:

In comparison, meeah williams’ efforts are a raging success:

We consider these asemic glasses a huge success and the realization of a dream from the heady days of the Martha Stuart School of Asemic Wallpaper. The missive we received from meeah also included these two incredible compositions on letter-size paper:

And the second:

FAB pieces! The asemic eyewear is certainly symbolic because everything meeah williams sent us is drenched in asemics. She also included this one-of-a-kind asemic boekie:

    wowowowowowo Meeah has channeled the late great Martha Stuart!! this asemic line is amazing. In his defense (why am I always defending him?), they still do not compare to original glasses that the founder of the Martha Stuart School of Asemic Wallpaper created. It’s like comparing apples and tires, zebras and cupcakes. It may have only been a prototype, but the use of cheap acryclic paint , shoe laces,and scotch tape on the originals, is what caught the interest of Google. They clearly took this idea and ran with it much like the TrashBubble craze. Meeah has inspired a new genre of entertainment–movies with asemic glasses. I am in awe and thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Miss Dk, here at the Mink Ranch we value your support of DVS against the smear campaign begun by Empress Marie after she stormed out (again) in another uncontrollable rage following the Who Has The Best Hair Contest. It’ll all be patched up eventually.

    Did meeah know about the glasses and goggles idea from the Martha Stuart School of Asemic Wallpaper? We hope to find out.
