Every day is a digital learning day @theoldmortuary as we are both digital migrants, very far from Luddites we are early adopters of technology who have a fondness for the hardware of the pre-digital age. Currently involved,and failing, to engage local artists in the benefits of Instagram , this morning I adopted irony with my post.
This image captivated me over the weekend, it illustrated an article about Hilary Mantel and her new book. Another image from the weekend was this typewriter in Joe and the Juice, Wimbledon.
I love that the hardware of the pre-digital age are loved by so many people and not all thrown into landfill.
Joe and the Juice, Regent Street had another gorgeous typewriter when I was there in the winter.
Lurking in the studio @theoldmortuary there is a collection of wooden letterpress letters.
The sentiment is somewhat appropriate.
And, thank goodness, neatly brings me back to art.
I would be really grateful to anyone who has an idea or experience of engaging artists and makers to engage with Instagram and Social Media in general. Comments either on here or on theoldmortuary Instagram/ facebook page. Thanks in advance.
