Pollution Piano <2019>
This sculpture is a water quality testing machine that is in the form of a piano like instrument. The machine performs a test of the water using the principles of conductivity analysis. Pressing each key will play a note that corresponds to one of the six samples the machine is capable of testing at once. Hearing the sonic difference between each sample will allow the viewer to gauge the water quality against a baseline sample of distilled water.

Very specific measurements can be used.
