Inhaltsangabe: Poetry. Art. African American Studies. Featuring line-drawings by Stackhouse and poems-as-essays by Keene—handed back and forth and back, written and rewritten, drawn and redrawn—SEISMOSIS penetrates the common ground between writing/literature and drawing/visual art, creating a revisioned landscape where much of the work is abstract or abstracted or both. The multiform agreements the texts & the drawings make, from a brilliant & decisive center, are revolutionary, antilinear, and highly responsive. SEISMOSIS is a formal experience. The result is a highly sophisticated call-and-response affair. A pioneer occasion, in which two African American artists have collaborated on a book of this nature, weaving a cohesive study of abstraction in both poetry and drawing, 1913's printing of the acclaimed collaboration approaches fine-press quality in mass-produced, perfect-bound, book-as-art-object form—in keeping with 1913's mission of integrating the visual and verbal zones.
From the Publisher: ... Seismosis is the complete text for the course, replete with illustrations, examples, graphs, exercises, and tests.
--from the Foreword by Ed Roberson
Wow. Rarely a book makes such an impact. Keene and Stackhouse heat up the strange place where abstraction becomes as visceral as thoughts or conversations. Anyone interested in artistic collaborations will rarely find one this complete, in the pleasure of ever-forming and dissolving boundaries between gestures. An immediate delight.
This exquisite collaboration goes beyond a linear mutual appreciation: poet likes artist's work--artist likes poet's work. In Seismosis, Keene & Stackhouse present an interwoven, intersecting conversation between one another and their art forms. We read the poems and see the drawings--we read the drawings and see the poems, as the collaborators make use of space, line, and textural performance in one multimedia framework. Here, two men's boyish charms and haunting playfulness create a three-dimensional canvas out of thinking inscriptions.
It's what happens when writing and drawing give each other a hand, a free hand, to shake it up, to go the distance from crossing out to crossing over, from ear to here and back again, fast. A little nerve music for the time being--sampling seismo for the pleisto scene.
--David Levi Strauss
