In North Bay, Ont., Taylor Craig creates wall hangings from people’s old pianos. The idea was born out of running his junk removal business and noticing the sentimental value of the 600-pound instruments that families could not afford to keep. Using mainly the piano keys, he repurposes the instruments and turns them into something small and light that families can keep forever. The artwork retains the piano’s sentimental value - each piece is unique to the original piano, the space it will be hung, and the family’s wishes.
