Der Erzähler (Storyteller)
Rests of ink on paper, typewriter
dimensions variable

Using an obsolete typewriter, I publish traumatic, violent stories from my own past. Although I write about the most intimate of subjects, the lack of ink in the typewriter leaves only a faint imprint of the letters on the paper, created by the forceful striking of the keys on the very fine paper. This act of writing seems ineffective, but acts more like a defence mechanism to block out the pain.
