With historical precedents in a broad range of genres and pursuits, from graffiti to calligraphy to visual poetry, asemic writing refers to a process that is like writing, but with no actual words. It is not as contradictory as it sounds. By gesturing towards the suggestion of language, the vacuum created by its absence opens a provocative space to expand how meaning is made. The task of asemic writing is to tell without telling, to suggest, to invite, to seduce, and to intuit, all while leaving the meaning to the viewer.
