Precious blurs the boundaries between functional object and musical instrument. This work was created over 2013-15 and involved collecting hundreds of old keys - keys to things that didn't work or exist anymore, or keys that had been found: any number and size/shape as long as they were no longer needed or wanted. Thanks to word of mouth and call outs on social media more than 300 keys were donated to the project.
