Page 104 from "Seesongs"
“The eyes look, and the eyes read. I propose they can also listen - an act different from both looking and reading. To explore this possibility, I have put together a book of non-linguistic, non-pictorial visual material: Seesongs. The drawings in this book are progressions of visual marks, which I call asemic music. ‘When the eye listens, the mind sings.’”–Rosaire Appel
