About the Author
Artist, poet, and writer Nico Vassilakis was born in New York City. His visual and video poetry is composed of letters and phrase fragments that are swept or cut into shapes emphasizing their structural qualities and ephemeral nature. Referring to Vassilakis’s visual poetry as “less a work of grammar and words than an experiment with typography,” the Stranger critic Paul Constant observed how he “works at the words, shoving them together and seeing what they do to each other when placed in close proximity.” Vassilakis’s books include the poetry collection Disparate Magnets (BlazeVOX, 2009) the visual poetry book staring@poetics (Xexoxial Editions, 2011) and MOMENTS NOTICE Luna Bisonte Prods, 2013). He collaborated with artist Friese Undine on Orange: A Manual (Sub Rosa, 1997). Vassilakis edited Clear-Cut: Anthology: A Collection of Seattle Writers (1996), co-edited The Last Vispo Anthology: Visual Poetry 1998-2008 (Fantagraphics Books, 2012), and has served as coeditor of Sub Rosa Press. In 1994, he co-founded the Subtext Reading Series in Seattle, WA. He currrently lives in New York City with his wife, poet Crystal Curry, and their sons.
