In this thematic issue of WiderScreen, we approach text art as both an object of study and artistic work. The contents represent the plurality of the topic: some of the works have been created using a typewriter, while others are hand-written or created on old computers. This spectrum highlights how multifaceted text art is as a topic – on the one hand there is surely nostalgia and attraction to old, recognizable technology, yet at the same time text art can be a highly reflective artistic practice, which questions today’s media and the practices that we take for granted.
