Chromatic Typewriter: Paint instead of letters by Terry Callahan













The painter and poet artist Terry Callahan changed the letters and other keys of a typewriter with colors. According to Terry:
"The little Chromatic Typewriter, a conceptual art piece, is out in the world and the feedback has been great.  Although it does not paint, I've decided I can at least re-type my artist statement with the thing, so long as I can limit it to a paragraph.  It ought to be equally decipherable as any other artist statement I've read lately."
It is with this piece that Terry is running the 2012 West Collects "West Prize Competition" that is voted here only over iPhone, iPad or Ipod. How ironic that a great creation that brings back typewriters can only be voted this way.
