Bo Biddley

I donated the rights to a custom piece to an auction for pediatric orthopedics. The doctor who won the auction requested a coffee table. I decided to make a tensegrity piece with guitar strings as the cables –four different gauges which resonate in different pitches when strummed. I painted plumbing caps and positioned them to resemble tuning keys. When I delivered it, I left several mother-of-pearl guitar picks on top of the table. Because it was bid on & I used guitar strings, I named it Bo Biddley.
