Piano burning

Eric and his friends at the college wanted a proper celebration for the piano.  They decided to burn it rather than let it rot in the land fill.  On May 11, 2008, the burn took place at Jasper Farm, Iowa.

The piano was destined for the dump. Nobody wanted it. They tried to give it away. No takers. So Eric and friends took it to the farm. They built the tripod and collected fire wood. Lots of people came to watch. They filmed the whole thing. I took home lots of burned metal, which I hope to make into a bricolage projects someday.
