In this personal project by Neil Baker, Otto, a busking hobo, plays a jaunty childlike tune on his toy piano to amuse passers by and earn himself the odd coin. But on a pavement full of street maestros, why would anyone spare a penny for old Otto? Because if you deposit a coin in this decrepit urchins cap you may discover the answer to the unknown secret of the universe. The question is, whose universe?
