Whimsical Ping Pong
- Whimsical Ping Pong
- Material: racket, pingpong ball, fan, aluminum bar plastic pipe, wood
- Year: 2008
- Place: Takashimaya Shinjuku, Tokyo
Wind power propels a ping-pong ball up a clear pipe, and falls back, bumping into eight ping-pong rackets placed in a zigzag configuration along the way. The path of the fall changes every time, and in some cases none of the rackets are hit. This is an installation which incorporates the path of a movement, regardless of success or failure, within the work.
