"Toy Piano (Stanley)", 2007
Toy piano, wood, electronics
7.5" x 12" x 12"
Concept: As an old building of classical style, this sculpture fits with the antique motif. It may appear that these items were uncovered remnants of some previous military operation to monitor the growth of the population across the water. Scientific in form, this sculpture speak to the process of discovery. Without instruction, participants must create their own path or work with others to solve the mysteries of the objects in front of them.
Participate: A child’s toy piano is transformed into an interactive work aimed at adults that teaches binary counting by means of pattern repetition (i.e. “Simon Says”).
