A Letter from 42 Butter Lane

2011 | Interactive video installation

A hacked typewriter acts as the entry point to a home shared for over 40 years by a woman and her late lover. Memories lives like ghosts in its keys. Viewers explore the home and the memories contained within it through activating the typewriter keys. When pushed, short video vignettes and archival photographs rear project onto paper mounted in the machine, creating a non-linear, experimental archive of the life the two women shared. The work utilizes physical computing, computer programming, and video projection.
