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, 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
