U5 #3 – Blast/Bless: Typewriter Essays

A Typewriter’s Blasting and Blessing

So during the afternoon after the crit, I made the first essays with a typewriter called Erika.

Sitting in the hallway in order to not disturb the other students in the Graphic Design Studios, the typewriter caught a lot of attention as the clicking can be ignored very easily. Due to the ink ribbon being very used already, the black ink didn’t mark very well on the paper. In the beginning I tried re-typing the letters two or even three times, then I decided it would be easier to use the red ink and maybe change the colour of the text later while processing.
