Obsessions… playing with piano keys

My partner suffers from the occasional bout of artistic obsession…

For some time, it wasn’t a new film, play or even music. It was piano keys!

No it wasn’t playing piano… it was creating art installations out of piano keys from one of first pianos in Bandra… as in over 100 years old!

What happened to the piano that came with these keys? Well… it was transformed into a bar some time ago. I recently met its owner and saw photos of its transformation – remarkable!

What happened to the piano keys? Here are a few of the pieces my partner created.

One project in process…

Wait…. wait… wait….

And the finished product:


There are also very practical “Keys for keys”

He also created a “Leaning tower of keys” and the final project was the “Key Lamp” which had a few iterations before finally becoming what you see here…

I’ve often been the beneficiary of his obsessions. When he says, “Let’s not get rid of it. I have an idea…” Chances are something quite interesting will be the result.

Anyone have an obsessive quality? Any interesting outcomes?
