This sculpture was commissioned as a memorial to an award-winning screenwriter, Lawrence B. Marcus, by his wife. The portable typewriter was used to write all of his scripts and was to be mounted on a hallway memorial wall commemorating famous residents of the retirement home where he had lived. The piece could not extend more than two inches from the wall. The portable typewriter was disassembled, crushed to 1 ½ inches thick, assembled on the base, and mounted in a acrylic glass case. This work was completed in 2002.
This sculpture is mounted on a memorial wall in the Motion Picture & Television Country House, a retirement home in Woodland Hills, CA.
