Analog Creation in a Digital World

BY TYSON CALL
@ VOL 16 ON OCT 16, 2015

“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the macbook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.”

In Analog Creation in a Digital World from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16Tyson Call, who is a writer, photographer, and motorcycle rider, talks about his story. For Tyson, however, sitting down to write on a computer creates too many distractions. Receiving a typewriter as a gift opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process and created a connection to the inner workings of other great writers like Hemmingway, Steinbeck, and Hunter S. Thompson. In this presentation, Tyson, muses on analog creation in a digital world and asks, "What have you done with a piece of paper? Nothing!"

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, June 28th, 2016.
