Tim Youd, a performance artist from Los Angeles, quietly sits on the second floor of the H&R Block Artspace at the Kansas City Art Institute on Tuesday afternoon, retyping the Evan S. Connell novel “Mrs. Bridge” as part of his project of retyping 100 classic novels at locations relevant to the author’s life or the plot of a novel. Youd uses the same make and model of typewriter as the author did, typing the complete novel on a single sheet of paper, backed by a second sheet of paper.
