Rainbow Typewriter

When I first saw this rainbow colored typewriter I thought, wow that’s a really cool decorated typewriter. But I was even more amazed when I read that it is actually a painting device.

The typewriter is the work of Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan, who replaced the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels so that instead of typing words, you can essentially type a painting. What a creative, genius idea! I mean, even if the paintings it creates aren’t masterpieces, can you imagine the hours of endless experimentation with different colors and patterns?

If you go to his website and actually read about it, you will see that it is a conceptual art piece- it does not paint or do anything like that….. But it is a cool idea, thanks for sharing..
