About the Piano
While creating an aesthetically exciting piece that says “come play me,” I want this piano to stir people into considering how the arts, math, and sciences are intertwined as fundamental building blocks of the human experience. I believe a key element of the SFH mission and what makes specifically the pianos project so profound is that it encourages all of us to embrace the infinite possibilities created when we explore these realms together as a community.
