Not so long ago, humans pecked out prose on miniature, one-off printing presses called typewriters, recorded music on magnetic tape, kept their contacts on revolving wheels of index cards and waited for film to be processed in a lab. The Cloud was something you looked at in the sky.
In this celebration of non-digital living – both practical and aesthetic — we’ll look at ways to write and organize, record and photograph in actual space: manual typewriters, Filofaxes and Rolodexes, fountain pens, cassette recorders and Polaroid cameras. We’ll review the operation of all the above, with working examples to try out. Postage, envelopes and stationery will be on hand; bring names and addresses – we will be writing letters at the conclusion of the class! $20. Taught by Michael McGettigan.
