Artist STEPHANIE STRANGE was commissioned by the Art in Public Places program to create a mobile for the entrance tower of this new branch library. Comprised of forty repurposed typewriters, this hanging sculpture, titled Black Well, is an homage to the recorded word.
The artist used the punch and strike keys of out of commission typewriters to create a variety of forms and movements that give the effect of a waterfall as the viewer looks up. Several of the typewriters were donated by library patrons, who will now see them preserved and transformed as part of this suspended artwork. Stephanie Strange lives in Bastrop, Texas where she pursues her artwork which often includes typewriter key work on paper.
