This project comes from the transformation of mechanical parts of a piano, a moving skeletal structure, fixed into a rigidity with carved wood, plastic tubes, flax paper and porcelain representing the final state of metamorphosis. The mutation of mechanical and organic, manmade and biological, a new hybrid of life.
