Dactylografies opens the door to the conversations between Isabelle Michaud and Jonathan Brodbeck. This mother and son team worked to create paintings that tell their everyday stories.  Using a typewriter from the 1960’s, Jonathan wrote about his everyday life, his interests, his favourite tv shows and the start of his Senior Year. Inspired by these writings, Isabelle manipulated the text to be introduced and balanced with other formal elements in the paintings such as the pixel, the closed boxes, the clouds, the plant-like and sometimes spine-like typewriting features. The letter and the typewriter represent a period of time when the analog was common, when the end of a sentence was marked by the sound of a bell, a connection to the physical representation of words.
