Haunted Typewriter

Whether we realise it or not, the tools we use to communicate, from spoken word to email, affect the content and tone of what we say, as well as the context of how our messages are received. It's as if the devices add their own personalities to our messages as we communicate through them.

This piece is a collaboration with Anthony Goh. It is an antique typewriter brought to life with over 30 actuators. It is an exploration of a device's character and our attitudes towards it.

Haunted Typewriter is at the Unleashed Devices exhibition at Watermans from 1 September – 22 October 2010.
