Description

Resonance consists of an upright piano made from hammered bronze and stainless steel accompanied by a partially-carved piano stool carved into a limestone boulder. Excavated during the construction of the Shenkman Arts Centre, the boulder establishes a link between the natural history of the site and the essence of the building as a home for the arts. Both the piano and the boulder rest on a concrete pad in the shape of a stage. According to the artist, the stage encourages patrons to participate in the work as a site of material meditation, or as a permanent prop in an outdoor performance. A bronze and stainless steel reproduction of the original boulder rests on the plaza surface off to the side.
