CHI Kai-Yuan

Triangle Table

Crane Gallery is a space full of geometric shapes. At the entrance on the ground floor, a huge piece of glass separates the space with angle and creates the overture for the perception of the gallery space. Therefore, I make a new division – an arbitrary isosceles triangle ping-pong table that is slanting responds to the glass also the space.

In front of this new platform (of ping-pong table), I observe how a body responding to this familiar yet strange object especially when the body starts to exercise since it must alter the conventional movement for the crooked triangle table. The body has to invent a new gesture for striking the ping-pong beyond the ordinary rules.
