window on to nowhere

namcomuseum:

Here’s (nearly) the full 1998 Tekken 3 calendar art! I saw two of the more outlandish ones over on another Tumblr blog where they were described as “elusive and mysterious”, so it dawned on me that I should post all of the ones I have.

jesuisperdu:

"In this dazzling “tribute to the typewriter and its particular qualities,” Alan Riddell compiled 119 works by 65 practitioners from 18 countries. The opening pages are devoted to three pioneers of the 1920s — Hendrik Nicolaas Werkman, Pietro de Saga (the pseudonym of Stefi Kiesler, wife of the Austrian architect Friedrich Kiesler) and an unidentified Bauhaus student of Josef Albers’. They are followed by ‘typewriter art’, concrete poems and typewritten constructivist, systems art, op and gestural abstraction works by Stefan Themerson, Dom Sylvester Houédard, Paula Claire, Richard Kostelanetz, Jiří Kolář, Jiří Valoch, Josef Hiršal, Václav Havel, Henri Chopin, Tom Edmonds, Steve McCaffery and others. The book is a follow-up to the catalogue Typewriter Art, Half a Century of Experiment published in two editions for the exhibitions in Edinburgh, 1973, and London, 1974.” [via]
