Introgic enclodiacy


Introgic enclodiacy


And, Miekal


The cards are held in a clear plastic cassette container. Title is taken from a blurb in cassette container. Each card is illustrated on one side, with a neologism printed on the reverse. Miekal And has written definitions for his neologisms in the form of a response on the card. Synopsis: Neologims such as "gmeknont," defined as: "To pull away from an argument because no one is listening to you & you know you are right. For example 'The opposition choose gmeknont in a long-standing debate.'" The artist writes in his introduction: "The first edition of Introgic Enclodiacy was created in 1983 & was intended to be a set of 'flashcards' for the neologisms in my book Knowledge Swirling Man Tells Slow Stories. At that time I included only the words on the cards because I had yet to experience definitions for them. Now in 1989 after living with the book & such words I have written mental responses to each word, both associative & otherwise. But definitions are temporary, & redefinition by usage is entirely possible. The neologisms are words are sounds which are points of information (or meditation) which lead the user beyond words & concrete meaning." --from Printed Matter Online Catalogue
