Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over eight million people worldwide – more than 1,400 pianos have already been installed in 47 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
Play Me I’m Yours is currently taking place in Canary Wharf until 10 October and was also recently launched in Hong Kong with 16 decorated street pianos available to play at PMQ until end of August, and then they will popping up across the city until end of December 2015! More cities still to come in 2015 include Munich and Canterbury in October. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 & 2016, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

A piano with build in doll house! A nice idea but not very practical. The clattering noise comes from the action inside. Quite original....
