    Diligent Typist



Artist Statement:

    “Diligent Typist” has a simple but powerful narrative by masking a MacBook backlit keyboard image. In a small office where there is a MacBook, a laptop desk, a chair, 4-channel speakers and a projected screen, the screen loops a simple keys’ march on a MacBook keyboard from left to right. The computer commands viewers to press a letter on the keyboard in alphabetical order. When they press the same key that the computer commands, viewers contribute to making the big letter image with busy typing sounds. Each key sacrifices its own entity to show a big letter like Mass Performance.
