Wednesday Wonder: Keira Rathbone's Typed Art

London-based artist Keira Rathbone makes us all wish we'd never thrown out those old non-self-correcting typewriters from our college days. Not only does Rathbone use vintage be-ribboned machines to produce her images, including portraits and landscapes; she also has gone so far as to equip them with sound to create sonic installations.

The owner of more than 30 typewriters, Rathbone sometimes spends as many as 90 hours to produce one of her inspired creations, some of which adorn wearables.



Rathbone currently has a show at Upsy Daisy Bakery, Hammersmith, London, until September 2.
