Silent Violin by Vivian-Rose Silent Violin by Vivian-Rose
This communicates the possibilty of all those notes the violin never played, this violin has no strings, so it can never play anything, and the kind of music it would have played is left up to your imagination.

I made the voilin from modrock and attached an actual violin neck, and the shot is taken on the floor of the art room, with my phone camera, because I love the grainyness it gives!

I was thinking to myself, how sad this is that a violin that was neglected like this until I read that you made it. Good job, this really looks real!

Lovely and kinda depressing. I think I would have run away screaming if this had been a real violin! And great idea taking it with a phone camera ;) Very well thought of.

This is beautiful. I play violin myself, and I thought this was a real one at first glance. xD Good job on it though, it's spot on.

This has to be the most depressing photo I've ever looked at :(

I never want to see an actual broken violin. The thought that a musical instrument has been silenced from its artistic talents and promises is the ultimate sorrow...just in my opinion I guess...

Your guitar is amazing, it's so dark and powerful and I can feel the violence you put into making the modroc and smashing it on the damn art floor.

Also thanks for the add finally. ;P

At least you didn't wreck a REAL violin. Then I'd be angry.

I'm particularly impressed by your use of a camera phone as an artistic medium. While most photographers shudder at the terrible resolution, quality, and clarity a camera phone generates, your decision to use these flaws to make a grungy final shot was interesting. :+fav:
