Luke Jerram, international artist and creator of Play Me, I’m Yours. More than 1,000 pianos have already been installed in 43 cities across the globe, from New York to London.
“The idea for Play Me, I’m Yours came from visiting my local launderette. I saw the same people there each weekend and yet no one talked to one another. I suddenly realised that within a city, there must be hundreds of these invisible communities, regularly spending time with one another in silence. Placing a piano into the space was my solution to this problem, acting as a catalyst for conversation and changing the dynamics of a space.”
