Some word play recently, with text taken from the Cobra manifesto - pertaining what what, you may guess. Suffice to say it's not embracing the matrix of cultural convention, but who does? Many for whom it proves beneficial, naturally. I've never been caught up in that matrix although I'm sure it would benefit me to become part of it's grid world of complex interwoven components designed to reinforce The System and reward those who adhere to its rules. Vispo (or concrete poetry) itself seems to have avoided the mainstream cultural matrix, existing as it does in visual limbo land, outside of Art and Literature.
