Art :: ‘New Typewriter Part Birds’ by Jeremy Mayer
Gone are the days of the typewriter; the satisfying clickety-clack of the metal and ink-ribboned machines and the purposeful key strokes that had to be made ‘just so’ to ensure your font was the same hue are forgotten details of a long lost art. In its place, you’re probably reading this post on some sort of mobile device, or digital pad of sorts.. your books are purchased online for download to any array of devices and even your PC’s keyboard is starting to collect dust.
So, what happens to these miniature musicless organs that produced a sound only the eye could see, touch, hear and taste with the imagination..? They’ve become relics of a not long ago past. But to some like artist Jeremy Mayer, the vintage typewriter has become a medium of art.
