Aliaksei Zholner – Paper Piano

An evening pause: Humans can make anything out of anything. From the youtube website:

The model is completely made of paper and cardboard….Strings are made of paper strips, tension mechanism is like one in guitar, using worm-gear (worm is made of paper, gears – from cardboard). Soundboard is combined with stiffness frame and made of 2.5mm cardboard enforced with stiffening ribs. Hammers – from paper and cardboard, dampers – from rolled up paper napkin, keys – from paper. Body is made of cardboard and painted.

Hat tip Martin Kaselis.

1776 – Hatching an Egg

A mid-day pause: Posted by me on almost every Fourth of July since this site was founded, it is time to do it again. From the 1976 movie version of the 1972 musical, 1776.

And as John Kennedy said of himself, ourselves, and these founding fathers. “We stand for freedom.”
