Artist Statement: Through my most recent project, The Community’s Magic Sound Box Project, I’ve created a group of ornate, mobile oral history sculptures. This work is rooted in the custom of the colorful costumed West African Masquerades, who traditionally perform during social gatherings and festivals. A Sing For Hope Piano is indeed a Community Sound Box. My concept for this project is to mirror both the inspiration and aesthetic process, that I’ve employed in creating my mobile oral history sculptures. I will produce a piano that will visually evoke a sense of magic.
