Poetry. Art. Nico Vassilakis' MOMENTS NOTICE has taken a huge leap forward in the evolution of concrete poetry, by utilizing the myriad possibilities of digital typographic manipulation. The result is work of great beauty, full color, design, concept, and a visuality that makes his ideas and poetics vivid and endlessly intriguing.

"Moments notice us at a moment's notice, lying in wait for us, in this space-time lingo-jaunt. When humans (hypothetically) fall into a black hole, the first thing their bodies undergo is 'spagghettification.' One could say when human language falls into Nico Vassilakis' clutches, it undergoes a similar process. But instead of annihilation, there is plenitude."—Maria Damon

"Is it feasible for visual poetry to be positively erudite? In the words (or word) of one of the not-quite-texts here, MOMENTS NOTICE presents the argument for YES."—Ron Silliman
