Play me, I'm Yours
Questioning the ownership and rules of public space ‘Play Me I’m Yours’ is a provocation, inviting the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
UK artist Luke Jerram, has toured the globe since March 2008 and placed street pianos in locations all over the world. From train stations to laundromats to skate parks, the pianos emerge in public spaces, inviting the community to engage and interact with them in a way that creates a playful and vibrant canvas for grassroots cultural self-expression.
I love this idea. Though putting pianos in the vicinity of wandering children may just end in terrible noise.
