Boston Center for the Arts Plaza
539 Tremont Street, Boston, MA
July 24 – October 15, 2014
BCA Artist Resident Liz Nofziger brings free community ping pong to the BCA Plaza this summer with Bounce, a colorful, interactive outdoor installation made up of three conjoined, regulation-sized ping pong tables, custom-engineered to form an oversized Community Ping Pong Court. This unique configuration, which opens to the public on July 24th and remains active on the Plaza through October 15th, encourages participants – from the proficient to the amateur – to try their skills, make new friends and make up their own rules. All are encouraged to stop and play – paddles and balls will be available at no charge around the clock. Each bounce of the ball will be captured by microphone and amplified, processed and played back in real time, adding another element of recreation to the work.
