Tyree Callahan has re-purposed a 1937 Underwood Standard to create a conceptual art piece called the Chromatic Typewriter.
Looking at this immediately begs the question “Does it work?” Callahan states:
“It’s important to remember this is a conceptual art piece and not entirely functional. To type out an actual painting would be fairly cumbersome as the paint would have to be manually reapplied each time it was used. Not to say it’s impossible, but the design would need some further modification to produce the type of artworks suggested in the images below.”
