Dominic Wilcox has created this Xylophone Bin for a VIPP Charity auction in NewYork to raise money for Chernobyl Children’s Project International and Foodbank NYC.
‘When the pedal is pressed the lid opens, releasing a ball that travels down a ‘helterskelter’ set of xylophone steps around the bin. Each time the ball hits a step, a note is played. The xylophone steps are cut in increasing lengths so that the note gets deaper as the ball gets closer to the bottom.’
