The Roving Typist

Needing money, Christopher Hermelin took his Royal Typewriter to the park and wrote stories for anyone for a few dollars. Now it is an art project, a kind of performance piece. He keeps no record of the stories. Once he gives them out they are gone. I totally love the idea of creating art without a need to keep it or exhibit it or publish it. There is something so liberating, so Zen, about sincerely focusing on the ephemerality of the process, about not clinging to the product.

I just ordered a story from him (you can do this online as well!).
