"Works and interviews" by Michael Jacobson is a collection of both asemic scripts ("The Giant's Fence", "Action Figures", "A Headhunter's Tale"), interviews and other textual installations ("THAT: A Planet", "The Paranoia Machine", "MK JCBSN").
The first three sections challenge
the reader to enter a net of finely entangled patterns and explore the
residual signs of plots, which the paranoid characters, once inhabiting
there, left deliberately behind.
Page after page, a carousel of
abandoned or accidental symbols, of dreams cropped from a broader vision
is delivered to the brain, which is supposed to edit and reassemble them
into full narrative frameworks. Readers turn into spies collecting
evidences of the impenetrable shelter of meaning. They may even find
themselves connected to peripheral cameras, recording the relentless
brain activities on the verge of dreaming.
Under a different
perspective, the storytelling approach of this book convincingly relies
on a cornerstone of asemic practice: however paradoxical it may seem,
the intrinsic coherence of asemicism generates meaningfulness while
stimulating the aptitude of readers to scan symbols in a meaningful way.
works act as blank tapes, simultaneously activated, recorded and erased
again while watched. Each reader is, as such, an accomplice of the
writer and possibly its desired alter ego.
A mirror is not an image
in itself, but it has the property of imaging, likewise each asemic text
does not exhibit a meaning of its own, but it is some sort of filter,
capable of simulating and stimulating meaningfulness, engaging the
reader into this unprecedented task.
- Federico Federici
