I am interested in art in public spaces/community art. As this work is about promoting play and inviting people to play I feel I want it used in a community recreational space. I had the idea of mocking up a playground and a basketball court on photoshop with some of my designs. Then on a walk through my local park I was reminded of the table tennis project Ping! Bristol. Table tennis in public spaces for anyone and everyone to play. So I thought my designs/invitations to play could translate to the table tennis table. Then I found an artist that does combine table tennis and art, based in London called the art of ping-pong. This led to discussions in the studio with my fellow course mates, about how you think you hit on an original/whacky idea, only to realise its already being done, probably several times over! On this page are my basketball court design ideas/invitations to play. On the next post I will share my table tennis ideas.
