Jacqui Malins
No comments

In the front window of Smith’s Alternative, a person is being eaten – or coughed out – by typewriters of varied vintage.  I recognise the face of artist Nicci Haynes, eyes closed, contorted into expressions of fear or outrage. She spits binary code as she is rolled into existence by these machines. Uneasy indeed, these…
