Dominic Wilcox’s ‘Xylophone Bin’ must be truly one of the most unique and fun creations I’ve seen in recent days. Basically it is musical garbage can art. Wilcox has rigged up a typical foot pedalled garbage can with beautifully tuned pieces of wood placed in a spiral around the bin, creating a xylophone effect.
When the can in opened, or rather as the lid closes, a small steel ball is released. The ball travels down the spiral ‘playing’ a melody on the wooden xylophone. Check out the video, it is amazing!
