"Pyre 1" by Kevin Stebner

This piece "Pyre" was created entirely using the underline key on a Remington Typewriter. Normally, the carriage of most typewriters only allows for the size of a standard sheet of paper, with a few inches of wiggle room. But the machine I am using has an oversized carriage that was used for book-keeping back in the day, so this size allowed me to shift the paper in all directions, flipping it upside down and every which way. Exploration of paper shift.

Only a few lines piled on each other, build a monument tall, blossoming and spilling over. Is a pyre cause for sorrow, or is a tower for celebration?
