The Gesturewriter

Media performance

Joseph KNIERZINGER[Austria]


Musicians can perform with the instruments they use to compose their music, but writers cannot perform their work with the hands, typewriter, or computer they used to create the texts. The work is a machine for composing and performing text. It allows for controlling the typing speed and typed characters by bringing a hand closer to or further from the antennas, like the theremin.
