xxchange and vacuum in Extrakt

Poems xxchange and vacuum were included in the Austrian publication Extrakt: Forum Stadtpark Literatur 2010-2012. Ed. Max Höfler. Graz: Verlag Forum Stadtpark, 2012.



My poems xxchange and vacuum are written in the international phonetic alphabet and their graphic design reminds of an X-ray image. The concept tries to invoke the idea of “scanning” the language and finding there the acoustic layers that actually create the poetics of these poems – rather than dealing with the poetics of sound just on the semantic level.
