It’s odd concept to grasp, but imagine being able to physically “type” out an artwork….
Well, it’s not that far from reality, thanks to conceptual artist Tyree Callahan. He’s the ingenious individual behind the Chromatic Typewriter, an artwork that began when decided to pull apart a classic 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing its trusty letters and well-worn keys with colour palettes.
For each letter of the alphabet, he allocated a specific hue – the theory is that by tapping them in various combinations, the ‘writer’ can create some truly vivid and peculiar art.
So WOULD it actually be possible to actually type out your own art rather than painting by hand?
The truth is, sort of.
