Imagine a room full of floating pianos, a seemingly impossible concept that artist Ken Unsworth brings to life with his piano art installation.

Not actually grand piano-sized, the floating instruments in this art piece are smaller in stature, making it feasible to hang them up using delicate strands of wire. To give such a cumbersome instrument the semblance of weightlessness is an impressive feat in itself, and the use of dazzling lights and spools of brightly colored thread turn the whole gallery into a magical site of musical wonder and delight.

Throughout his piano art installation, Ken Unsworth also incorporates other impressively suspended objects such as a set of giant wooden oars and a vintage baby crib for added effect.
