Deconstructing a piano is no small task
Ever since I saw my fellow assemblage artist, Greg Hanson's blog posting about finding piano parts in the metro station during his 6-month gleaning program, I was hankering to get my hands on a piano. Recently, my friend was innocently telling me about cleaning out her house and one of the items she had to get rid of was a piano. What?! My ears perked up and upon further discussion, found out that she had an organ that her housemates were willing to let go of as well. A date was set and off I went, Builder Bob in tow. We disassembled large parts there and then I further deconstructed them at home. It was not a small task. Let me tell you, there are a lot of screws in a well made piano. Now I have more than enough bits and pieces and I think I will share my bounty with some of my fellow assemblage artists.
