As teachers and artists, we believe that creating and celebrating community is an important aspect of education. Unfortunately, the reliance on technology is causing many to disconnect with their natural world, and the "us first" mentality of our policy makers is serving to destroy the connections children build. We recognize that by building bridges between people, countries and the nature that surrounds them is critical to a peaceful future. This important conversation is one we hope to inspire our students to have by exploring it in our piano. We have combined images of shattered technology with natural elements to build a connected city scape; incorporating the Brooklyn bridge and NYC with the Vancouver skyline and the Port Mann bridge.
