Incredible Textual Art

I recently featured an image by artist Micah Lexier in a post and I have become so enamored with his work and the way he incorporates language and text into it, that I have decided to devote a post to some of my favorite works of his.

The first two are companion pieces that were featured in The Walrus magazine (the type beneath each is mine).

The left half of this sentence has the exact same number of letters and words as has the right half.

There are the exact same number of letters and words in this sentence as there are in the prior one.

This piece below was done in collaboration with experimental poet Christian Bök.

And here are several more including a couple that exhibit Lexier's punctuistiveness side.

Links to the above six images in their respective order are here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
