Trees work in the woods like words do in the poetical text. Exploring a book like this goes beyond the pure reader’s control and turns into a practice whose results are unpredictable. – Tim Wallington.

«Exploring asemic patterns found in nature, Berlin-based physicist, translator, and writer Federico Federici offers a meditation on trees and wind. This volume contains a wide variety of mark-making—from thin curved lines and printed text to thick smooth brushstrokes and small illustrations.»

Valikoima runoja monikielisestä visuaalisen runouden kokoelmasta E-IS.
Excerpts from the multilingual book of visual poetry E-IS.

This excerpt consists of the first few pages of E-IS, a still unpublished work with a strong bent toward visual poetry. The trope of the text as an intrinsic combination of both sound and word structures is here achieved by different means: setting up whole blocks of text, sparse lines or split syllables; arranging tables of words; scattering residual scribbles, figures or short sentences, pointing to seemingly off topic documents. This results in the reader’s immersive experience of diving into some accreted language structure to unlock while being looked at and read, with no other way round. While in Requiem auf einer Stele (first ed. Conversation Paperpress 2010, second ed. Libri della Neve 2017) the sediment of different languages was embedded in the geology of a river stone, in E-IS the premise for it relies on the fissures of ice. Words into no matter which language physically weigh on a somehow transparent surface, «écran plastique de la représentation» (Louis Marin), whose crack lines, occurring in the very singularities of meaning, are often largely unpredictable. The reader and the writer get thus engaged in the same task.
