Through this diptych, the artist recalls his sound installation “The History of the Typewriter recited by Michael Winslow” in which the actor reproduced, just using his voice, the sound qualities of a typewriter. Each of these works, made up using an electronic and mechanical typewriter, are abstracts compositions, created and generated by signs and symbols.

Starting from simple and impulsive movement of his wrist, the artist draws accurate ad complicate lines in which positive and negative scribble grading are well balanced and wigwagged. Each sign has a particular intensity, a product of time and layers applied by the artist on the paper.
