2011 | Interactive Video Installation

Interactive video installation in which a hacked typewriter acts as the entry point to a home shared for over 40 years by a woman and her now deceased lover. Memories lives like ghosts in its keys. When pushed, short video vignettes and archival photographs, inspired by the house, are rear projected onto paper mounted in the machine. Viewers are guided through the home and its memories through the keys they push, creating a non-linear, experimental archive of the life these two women shared from their first meeting in the 1960s up to the present. Utilizes physical computing, computer programming, and video projection.
