"Something From Nothing" 
CJ Jones

CJ Jones is a visual artist from Fremont, California and was introduced to the worlds of typewriter art and visual poetry in 2018. Unsatisfied with the typewriter as an art making tool, he used a rotary tool to grind off parts of typewriter letters, numbers, punctuation marks and symbols to make a character set of marks closer to what an artist might use to draw an image. With these remaining letter parts, CJ can reconstruct Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic alphabets as well as Latin alphabets in reverse or upside-down.
