Sydney 2009...
Play Me, I'm Yours

Touring internationally since 2008, "Play Me, I'm Yours" is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram.

From 21st June - 5th July, 60 upright pianos will be distributed across New York City by Sing for Hope. Located in public parks, streets and plazas the pianos will be available for any member of the public to play and engage with. This website is made for you to post and share your films, photos and stories about the pianos. While documenting each piano's journey, the website will connect the pianos with their individual communities across the city. Following the artwork, the pianos will be donated to local schools and community groups.

Locations for the pianos, which include the Coney Island boardwalk, McCarren Park, Prospect Park, Central Park, Bryant Park, Times Square, South Street Seaport, the Staten Island Zoo and many other places, are listed at the website and below...

All I can think of is how whenever there's a piano in a thrift store some little kid bangs away on it the whole time & drives everyone insane.

As a BV commenter, it is my responsibility to publicly hate both this idea and everyone who is excited about it.

The art comes from not touching the fucking piano and not ruining the lives of everyone around you by making a fucking racket.
