We made a music contraption as my last project at Bancroft. I made a bamboo structure to hang objects that make noise on this last day. There was no thought of permanence. Just in the moment fun using whatever materials I had to work with. I used bamboo which I grow and know many spots in the area to get some. Then I tied it together with rebar wire or cable ties. There were tomato cages in the garden I put together in a more sculptural way to hang bamboo chimes from. On the way to school someone had thrown 2 bikes in the trash so I took the front wheels. I had a box of kitchen utensils from way back in the day when I was making armor from kitchen doodads.
We started inside playing with different sounds to find what we liked best.
Kalop loving the sounds and the sunshine. We had a wonderful day for this project.
So my final day was joyous, sad, and very noisy.
