Story Teller
Tom Jennings

"Obsolete forgery, historical fiction, a concrete realization of a lie. Story Teller tells tales stored on tape, via speech, text on paper, a semi-translucent spectacle of mediation and machinery.

It is a system of cooperative but independent devices, mechanisms, and mechanical contrivances, of ambiguous age and origin.

Externally, is speaks, prints, draws and writes. Internally, it is a little model of anarchism, though it requires instrumentation and intellect to discern; the inter-connected apparatii (is this a word?) communicate with text, religously-pure-ASCII, stored on the one truly myria-year archival machine-storage medium: perforated paper tape."
