Luke Jerram is known worldwide for the large scale public artworks he creates which encourage public participation. His global sensation Play Me I’m Yours left pianos on the streets of 50 cities from London to Melbourne and New York, and they have been enjoyed by more than 10 million people worldwide. His installation Park and Slide caught the public’s imagination as huge crowds turned out to watch people hurtle down a giant water slide in Bristol.
