Isolated Life by Hiromi Suzuki
No. 15 of the TYPEWRITTEN series: Isolated Life by Hiromi Suzuki
"In 2020, a 'stay at home' warning due to pandemic forced us to avoid outings. For the first time in a long time, I put Olivetti's typewriter on my desk and started this Isolated Life series. The typewriter keyboard has a sound and rhythm which makes me feel like I am playing music. On an isolated island in the ocean, tapping the keyboard I sang the songs alone. Then, I loaded my finished poems on a beautiful crafty boat that dear Petra Schulze-Wollgast prepared on the cove for me. I hope that my collection after drifting, and wandering will find its way to some ports and reach you all. " (Hiromi Suzuki)
