wetheurban: THE CHROMATIC TYPEWRITER
What a lovely new use for an old gadget. Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan has modified a traditional typewriter and turned it into a painting machine, or “Chromatic Typewriter”. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. The keys on the vintage 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter have each been replaced with a different pad of color to give some rather interesting results!
While Ai’s “Fuck You” photographs are not my favorite work of his, they, as these glasses also do, are fitting of a certain pissed-off mood. I greatly appreciate that the designer has made these easily downloadable so you can make them yourself.
sweeet! I guess I didn’t explain that my older paintings were personal to the people I made them for because it incorporated their hobby, what they make me think of, or something they just love. The new stuff I’ve been working on is different though. I’m making a political series right now with the splatter incorporated into objects e.g., planes, fuel, oil spills, t.v., etc.
Komal Sheth, “Guitar”
An older painting. I used to only do paintings when asked by someone or if I preplanned the person I’d be giving it to. My newer stuff incorporates the splatter into objects.
