100 Hybrids by Jefferson Hansen | Coming out in Summer 2018 from Post-Asemic Press

Jefferson Hansen's new book 100 Hybrids, a book of asemic writing combined with poetry, will be coming out this summer from Post-Asemic Press. Above is the new cover art for the book. I am very excited to release 100 Hybrids, the poems are great and the asemic writing is primal and different than anything else out there. Included in this work are poems about poet-technology, new and old, which combine into verbal and non-verbal documentation of the author's current existence in a surveillance society.

Below is the first poem from 100 Hybrids:

Jefferson Hansen

About Artefacts

In January 2017, O Mayeux wrote a computer program to dismantle all the poetry he has ever written, to tear it apart at its seams, to stitch its syntax into itself. What remains are these Artefacts, a cycle of asemic poetry. The abstract erotic narrative threaded through these poems is a delicate lament for the fragility of semantics, a tale of how we all remain unreadable to each other.

O Mayeux (http://4f4d.xyz/) is an artist and linguist. Artefacts is his first book.

"Mayeux here takes the bits and pieces, the scraps and refuse of language, the smallest particles, and re-knits them into a unspeakable song, Language clamors and yawps, mutters and sighs a new poetry, a choir of difference, a harmony of letterforms.” — derek beaulieu

'Through disappointment comes clarity. From clarity comes conviction. And thus, from conviction, arises opacity, again, inescapable, overlapping, murky. This beautiful work, Artefacts, is a testament to life, through poetry, the way it actually is. Broken, eclipsing itself, beautiful, made of older pieces, physical, disfigured. Showing there can be no real clarity in language art, just a pristine fracture.'
  — SJ Fowler

Artefacts by O Mayeux is now available at Amazon USA, UK, Canada, & Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Spain)!

Artefacts by O Mayeux, a book of asemic poetry, being read by 2 Minneapolis poets Terry Folz & Jeff Hansen at a poetry reading!

"This is my first modeling gig. I found it rewarding and remunerative. If any other presses would like me to model for them, I would be interested in hearing from you. PM on Facebook would be fine. But seriously, this is quite a book. It mashes together all the poems O Mayeux had written through a couple computer programs. They come out as letters piled on one another and, on virtually every page, some normative words. Congratulations O Mayeux and Michael Jacobson on this one."
--Jeff Hansen
