Curated by Nico Vassilakis in Seattle:
1. Thou shalt have few other gods before Language
2. Thou shalt make unto Language many graven images
3. Thou shalt not take the name of Visual Poetry in vain
4. Honour the sabbath day; sleep late then produce many visual poems
5. Honour thy letter and thy image
6. Thou shalt not kill
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery with unwedded images or text
8. Thou shalt borrow but not steal
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy language
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's visual poems

Not blank page into poem, paragraph, or contract--or something--but blank page into potential of space, space of potential.
