44v1: Universi (Unavailable)


A Collection of Essays about Life & The Universe

written by T. Y. A. [1/3/13]; let go by T. A. H.[11/16/14]

44v1, a visual literary work done completely on napkins in public places. This work was available in print in 2012 & digitally from 2014-2017. I have since pulled it from the shelves. I believe, have always believed, I could perform a better translation than the one achieved, from napkin to paper, from lined poetry with visuals to prose and sequential visuals. Below are some images and things related to its production. It will be back some day, most likely as part of 44v5.

  1. man, it really looks interesting, and seroius, i hope to know more form your proyects. i would love to read your essays. i am tryng to figure it out what is on your mind, like ¿are we crazy?, i dont think you are, but playing with madness ¿can be fun?, or can we turn around things just doing whats not political correct? does society condem us just to think different?.

    • Hi Jodiaz,

      Thank you for your interest and support. The best way to stay updated is to use the email subscribe form– there are other access points too, and you may find them on the right side of the page under the Manic Dreams Social Network. If you are interested in my mind, an immediate entry is to check out The Chronicles of Mania. That body of work will provide you with a wide variety of my history & personal expression, both written and visual, for you to absorb and interpret.

      Your four questions: I no longer think of people in dictionary terms (e. g. crazy / normal / borderline / etc…), this is the consequence of studying the relationship of binary oppositions and the 3-Dimensional variables. This coming sentence is unfairly condensed: everything is individually relative & there is no such thing as society.

      I am excited for you to read these essays. They are accessible and take on 44 different subjects; some are philosophical, some are bizarre, some are narrative, and continued. One thing I guarantee from all of them is that they are purposeful–they are all written with purpose. My goal with 44v1 was/is to create something productively entertaining, and to be honest with you Jodiaz, I am really freaking excited it.

    Hi Justin :D Don’t know if you remember us but you gave us your cards last week at the bar. You told us about the chronicles of mania and also that you were writing a book coming out soon. To be honest we kind of passed it off but damn your stuff is legit! Kudos to your awesome work and we will both be reading 44v1 when it comes out :)

    • Well thank you for still checking it out. I have to self-promote my own work and try to give out as many cards as possible without being annoying or self-degrading. I’ve actually almost stopped altogether with it as I walk closer and closer to the date of 44v1 publication, which by recent announcement, will be up on December 21st, 2012 for $7.44. Thanks for the support and may you both have a good day / week / year.

  3. It’s important to mention one of the unmentioned struggles about this work. So T. Y. A. had written all of this on napkins & bits of trash, as mentioned, but neither dated them nor sorted them out in any manner. His efforts to transcribe this large pile of words lacked solid conviction, he unsure of how to transcribe the work, with their being no chronological possibilities & also…& also with what he felt was the real art of it all being the actual ink bled onto the various absorbant surfaces, & the various visuals…
