100 Years of Typewriter Art

frank

Frank Singleton, “Abstract 3” (1986)

 

Marvin and Ruth Sackner are responsible for the largest collection of visual and concrete poetry in the world and they now have a book featuring the work of 200 typewriter artists. The Art of Typewriting will be released by Thames & Hudson later this month.

The unique compilation appeals to a nostalgia for “mechanical imperfection” and working within technical constraints. It includes the first known piece of typewriter art (a butterfly of brackets and dashes by British secretary, Flora Stacey, from 1898) and other images that can’t be replicated with the slick and seemingly limitless technology of today. See more images from The Art of Typewriting below.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
