Luke Jerram creates live arts projects. This summer he has placed thirty pianos around London (http://www.streetpianos.com/london2009/). Each is uniquely decorated and all say, in big letters, “Play Me, I’m Yours.” There’s a wonderful slideshow of people interacting with the piano’s at http://www.streetpianos.com/london2009/gallery.
