I feel quite confused about the direction i'm taking this project in but I think this is kind of the point. I have been getting into the research which kind of a big thing for me.
I thought this was interesting as it combines text with image but is based on intuition and is not meant to be read. Just felt.
We are few weeks into this project now and Letterism is something i found from researching Orange alternative revolution which I got to from the art movement Happenings. All of these movements are vaguely related with this instinctive form of expression.
Every single crit i am sort of feeling more despair and have to go back into research which makes me feel more and more lost but I am discovering recurring aspects which is good because that is we are supposed to be making a publication with. I guess I just need to do more research.
'We humans don't think in words. There's a deeper level, which only condenses out into words as the final stage. This is my belief. If this is true, then we need something other than words, to illustrate our true thoughts. Some of the asemic writing feels true to me, in ways that words cannot achieve.'
"Hypergraphy merges poetry (text) with more visual (graphic) ways of communication such as painting, illustration or signs. This technique was first known as 'metagraphics', but later became known as 'hypergraphics'. Maurice Lemaître, a Lettrist theorist, defined it as communicating through the union of various forms of communication, as an "ensemble of signs capable of transmitting the reality served by the conscienceness more exacltly than all the former fragmentary and partial practices (phonetic alphabets, algebra, geometry, painting, music, and so forth)."
'The fulfillment of human desires.'

I saw a film by him made in 1964 called Opus 110a. I have written down in my notes 'use of music choreographing in film'. Can't find any examples of it atm.
