COMPETITIVE WRITING
SEPTEMBER 25, 2006 8:58 PM

Here Justin Quinn and Splinters make prints based on the participants ping-pong games. Each player chooses a paddle and ball with painted letters, and the volleys are recorded as language poems. A soundtrack of ping-pong games plays and sounds remarkably like a typewriter. Collaborative, action printmaking, and one of the world's best games.

how are the volleys recorded?

at the beginning of the game, players announce their paddle and ball choices.
then quinn and i listen to the game and stamp according to the sound of the volley. one stamper has a paddle letter and a ball letter. the other stamper has the other paddle letter.
