Marcel de Vries and Gerard Eikelboom lead the observer to a new, sensational way of writing. The text generator that they built, will visualise texts in a spectacular way. 45 TL lights each control a relay driver. Each relay driver controls a lamp as well as one of the keys of an electronic typewriter. The typewriter spits out a random text, while the lamps flash at an irregular pace. As a result, light and text integrate and randomly appear as a whole. A time switch controls the 12 minute intervals of active operation of “Kwertie”.
