- Intonation: mixed media artwork by Louise Philbrick designed with piano parts scavenged from a piano beyond repair
 

"Intonation" is a mixed media piece using piano parts made of wood and lead plugs. I have only dismantled two pianos that contained parts similar to these (researching their function... I could make an educated guesss but would much rather provide facts). Most piano parts will "tell" you how they function and some of their history, if you are really paying attention. I enjoy discovering these things during the dismantling process. My process is as much about taking stuff apart as it is about art-making.
