Burning Underwood Typewriter

Installation by Argentine conceptual artist Leopoldo Maler titled "Hommage", part of the permant art collection at the Hess winery in Napa Valley.

 

Maler's uncle, a well-known Argentine writer, is believed to have been killed for the inflammatory content of his political essays. The old Underwood typewriter that now emits flames in the place of words is of the same style that Maler's uncle used during his esteemed career.
