Chromatic Typewriter




"By replacing the ink ribbon with paint blocks on an antique typewriter, artist Tyree Callahan has created a new conceptual instrument (it's mechanics don't allow it to actually paint) in which the notions of paint and words converge. Initially started as an experiment to apply watercolor text to a work in progress, the project grew to the resulting object, aptly named the chromatic typewriter."

Lovely concept. I wonder how it works for making pictures? Or is it just a conceptual creation.

I want one... Too bad you can't just buy one from a local store. :P
