The Piano Body

 

This wearable sculpture presents the player and the instrument fused in the same body. Conceived to come to life once in motion, it allows the actor to read sheet music, play and sing simultaneously. Born from the desire to unite art, artist and instrument in the same object, it uses the trompe-l’oeil technique to create an illusion of depth.
