Harmonic Imbalance

Noel Sheffer's avatar Noel Sheffer Vote Code: 64825

This piece allowed me to explore a new, invigorating form of sculptural art. Using the piano keys connected me to my musical roots. The message I am trying to convey in my work is one of harmony, motion, and chaos. The spiral of the piece is intended to represent the spiraling condition of our world. The chaos all around us is represented through this form of motion. In contrast, the simplistic black and white of the piano keys is meant to be seen as the calm that is needed in our lives. When people view my art, I hope they notice all the little nuances that come together to harmonize with the work as a whole. The idea of coming to ArtPrize with this piece was brought about after winning West Michigan Student Showcase in March.
