We were thrilled when we were given another opportunity to work with Canary Wharf Arts + Events. This time to source five designers for new street pianos as part of Luke Jerram’s “Play Me, I’m Yours” international tour.

We actively reached out to digital artists, textile artists, paper artists and more, resulting in 50 submissions. 12 were shortlisted from Canary Wharf to pick the final 5 from. We loved discovering new creatives and it was a treat to see the completed work being played by the public.

“The submission process for the Play Me I’m Yours piano project was smooth and seamless. With thanks to Zealous, I felt supported and able to be my creative best. I am so pleased to have been able to realise my light-based interactive piano and hope that the public in Canary Wharf enjoy playing the piano as much as I enjoyed making it.”
