Wooden Gramaphone – OneFiveEight Exhibition

gramaphone Hand Illustrated, Laser Etched Gramophone.

Constructed as part of an exhibition,  NONE was asked to created artwork based on a piece of music submitted by producer/musician Elizabeth Vince.
The Gramophone was hand crafted from locally sourced natural wood then laser etched with hand drawn illustration. The horn was contructed from a laser cut sheet of ply, dated 1940 which was originally waiting to be used to form the cockpit of a hurracaine fighter plane.
Inside the Gramophone consisted of a hacked MP3 player which when triggered by a light sensor via a hole in the lid kick started the track playing through a small speaker in the horn as well as the tree slice “vinyl” spinning until stop by recovering the light sensor.
