Lazy blogging: Typestracts

I've got a longer entry planned for later, but for now enjoy this article on a piece of contemporary typewriter art that is not made by machine disassembly. Reading art analysis always makes my brain feel swimmy, but if nothing else this has given us a new word to use in our retro-loving arsenal. I don't see much on the 'tubes about the artist/poet, Dom Sylvester Hou├ędard, perhaps one of you better-read types can provide more information?

Update: Here is a selection of his works.
