Painting with a typewriter

Came across this awesome typewriter via Colossal. This conceptual art piece is made by painter Tyree Callahan, and is in fact a modified 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter. By replacing the letters with color pads, and placing matching hued labels on the keys it has become a “painting device” called the Chromatic Typewriter. Very very cool!
