Type City – Sculpture from Scrap by Hong Seon Jang

One man’s trash is another man’s pearl. In a digital world, typewriters belong to the museum or the scrap heap. Some of these instruments from a bygone era were resurrected by Korean artist Hong Seon Jang. He works mainly with found objects and common products. Type city is made entirely with parts scavenged from several typewriters and whether viewed from the front, top, or sides gives the viewer the impression of  a grimy, highly industrialized city. It is only when you look closely at the highrises that you see individual letters.
