I hadn’t planned to do a VisPo this week, but this one came to me today when I decided to become more intentionally philosophical in some of my artwork. I’ve always been fascinated by the number zero and the concept of nothingness. I especially like to think of “nothing/ness” in relation to language. Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben’s Language and Death: The Place of Negativity is a fascinating exploration of that relationship. This poem is inspired by Agamben and…nothingness.

    Love the interplay of language and numbers, and the influence of the German thinkers. Very cool. Peace, Linda

      When you put it that way, it sounds like heaven. Mixing these things is something I do naturally and it’s nice to start reflecting that in my work. 😉

    Wonderful! I’ve often thought about negative space as well.
