IDENTITY IN DIVERSITY, (Artpool, 1993, A/5, 38 pages, photocopy, 100 copies)

A concrete poetry project (wordworldwork). Let us assume for example that the world does not fall apart because even the remotest things can be related through one of their elements, then let us put it on the test: eg. with language. (One might well assume that the four cardinal points are the remotest things in the world, yet, they have one thing in common: they are 90, or 180 degrees from one another.) If we try, in any language, to write the words NORTH, EAST, SOUTH, WEST across one another so that one letter in each is identical, the four words will form a compact shape. (We can try to do the same with world views, too)

Available in exchange.
