A picture speaks 1,000 words. I guess that’s what Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan was thinking when he took a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter and replaced the letters and keys with color pads and labels to create a painting of sorts. The beautiful device called the Chromatic Typewriter was part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. Would love to try it!
