China: A water calligraphy dot matrix printer

Categories: China, Arts & Culture, Citizen Media, Language, Technology

Danwei has produced a video interview [1] with Nicholas Hanna, a media artist who has built a tricycle that can paint Chinese characters with water on the ground as it moves. The machine is inspired by Beijingers who practice Chinese calligraphy with water brushes on the ground in parks.
