Stories from the Typewriter
Madeline Messinger (Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design)
“Stories from the Typewriter” is a culmination of a year-long engagement project with the public. Using a typewriter as a lure, strangers were prompted in public spaces to write poems about family, nostalgia and place. In the Stamps Gallery, this project will be shown in two parts: a short film documenting the process and a structure displaying the collected poems as well as archival objects associated with the poems.
