TYPING (Not Writing)

Evolving series of typewritten notes: immediate, responsive, repetitive and [perhaps, somewhat] materialising a futile but doggedly persistent desire to pin down [or pindown], define, know, hold in place, and/ or identify literal meaning and exact expression, even when, or especially when, none exists.

More than 300 works in series.
