I like to tackle a theme by trying to think of the least obvious idea, because this would be among the most interesting to encounter as a viewer – and that is part of what makes a good work of art. The theme here was “Musical Instruments” and so I could photograph a cello, or violin, or piano, or drum – but what if the instrument was the human body? I had a vision of a person strung together, playing themselves like a harp. In the studio I tied strings from my arms to my legs and clicked the shutter release a few dozen times. This was the result.
