Type-writer analogue

Interactive installation: a rewired keyboard connected to a receipt printer. The computer keyboard has word-keys instead of letter-keys. All the words chosen for the keyboard are collected from https://www.isidewith.com/polls/popular, a website where the most popular political issues are voted by users. Any type-in from the keyboard will be instantly printed out from the receipt printer, resulting to a big pile of receipt rolls with “big political words” printed on them.
