Chromatic Typewriter

Amazing! This is a conceptual piece by artist. Tyree Callahan, who modified a typewriter by replacing the keys with pads of color.

p.s. Check out another artist’s take on a different ‘type’ of typewriter art.

    The typewriter is a work of art that makes more art. It’s fantastic! How does your mind have to work to even come up with that idea? Very cool.

    This is such a creative concept! I love the idea! Maybe they should also do it with pianos if it could be modified too!
