Electric Typewriter Modded to Make ASCII Art Portraits: Chartography

by Lambert Varias

Last month we saw artist Dmitry Morozov’s 8-bit instant camera. His latest work is an even more primitive camera. Dmitry calls it the i/o, an electric typewriter that makes portraits using ASCII characters.

The i/o is based on a Brother SX-4000 augmented with a camera and an Arduino.

The most important lesson here is that typewriters are extremely noisy. Damn. Head to Dmitry’s website to see more of his technological art.
