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.

Ticket Giveaway: Canal180’s 8-Day Creative Camp in Portugal

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.

Tickets are still available! Also if you happen to live in Abrantes I believe there are special terms for you to participate. Head over to 180.camp for more info and to see the list of speakers and workshops announced so far (more on the way).

Now for the really good news, we have a full package ticket (350 € value) to give away to one of you, which includes participation in the 8-day camp, accommodations and food.
