Artist Profile - Gust Burns
Gust Burns received 2009 GAP Award funding for the reconstruction process of a piano for an installation project at Gallery 1412 in Seattle. The piece is to be comprised of reassembled instruments from various piano parts. The finished installation, comprised of the new instruments along with assemblages of unused piano parts, will include an edited audio recording of the disassembly and reconstruction processes. Gust’s work revolves around expanding his creative practice to include spatial and environmental aspects, in creating an environment that exists over the course of days during which visitors can explore and experience at their own pace.
