About this artwork

Included in this piece are parts of a piano that could not be found a new home. It's worn keys reminded me of all the faces I carry around and play with, my polite face, interested face, sincere face, the face I show at the supermarket versus the face at rest at home. It's a virtual symphony of face changing to be accepted or liked or to make myself feel safe. The trick is finding the one true face that hums perfectly in tune with the world around and within me.
