Play Me, I'm Yours! is a public piano project created by British artist Luke Jerram. It involves populating the streets of Parramatta and Sydney's CBD with 30 pianos, challenging preconceived notions of city living and enhancing our sense of community. Play Me, I’m Yours! grew from Luke’s observation of how we see the same people every day on our streets, around our workplaces and in our parks but rarely stop to say hello. Out of this came a plan to use music as a catalyst for strangers to talk and to connect with one another.
Looking at the map on the official site, there are another 3 pianos between my home and my work. Wu-hoo!
