Description: 
Serge III rented an upright piano and waited by the side of the nationale 7 road, in the direction of Paris. Nobody picked up this strange hitchhiker.

Intention: in June 1969 Ben and Mérino organized the Non-Art Festival. Ben had told me that someone-or-other from Fluxus had written a book listing all the pieces with a piano created under the sun. I answered that he could add two, hitchhiking, and boating on a piano.
