Nicholas Hanna built a tricycle paints Chinese characters on the ground as it moves because he was… bored. Continuing a long-running tradition of water calligraphy in China, normally it’s old men painting the ground of parks with long brushes and water, so Hanna’s contraption is certainly a novel idea. Directed by Jonah Kessel.
