Installation at the Modern Fuel ARC, March 26th to April 23rd, 2011
In 2011, Decomposing Pianos met and chronologically depicted 88 individuals to correspond to each key of the piano. 20 portraits were displayed at the State of Flux Gallery to showcase this work in progress. Tones and portraits of several groups and individuals were presented, as well as the piano itself.

The piano is a natural way to sonify our numerical age. By placing each year on the chromatic scale, an individual can be represented by a single key. A chord becomes a friend, a family or a relationship. A note becomes a full life, well-lived. Both man and machine move along the same arrow of time to which we are all captive.

This project will be released in 2012.
