Silkscreen on parchment

Edition 1 of 6
I wanted to compile a history of writing into this work. Parchment is an early writing medium, the scroll is perhaps the most linear reading media. The narrative is laid out like a ReadMe file, in monotype typeface Courier that is based on the typewriter. The travel log describes how software in Silicon Canyon (the graveyard for all the software and hardware every created) un compile and overflows from the hardware, like souffle. segments of source code airborne like feathers. The traveler wraps the code around the finger and save it in a mint box.
