A deconstructed piano in two parts forms the basis of Resonance, a hands-on
work that invites the public to explore its sounds-in-nature. One part seeks to
evoke the inaudible sounds of seismic forces - sliding tectonic plates and other
vibrations - that move continuously beneath the biosphere in which we live.
The other part of Resonance – the upright piano frame – connects directly with
the surrounding environment. In this sense, Resonance is a 'non-site' sculpture
with site-specific connections – birds, water, trees and plants, as well as human
activities and forms – in the immediate environment.
Wood, steel, wire, glass block, bamboo, felt, screws, stone, etc.
