Last night I was looking at work by contemporary Icelandic artists when I discovered the work of Egill Sæbjörnsson. This video, Ping Pong Dance (2006), borders on being annoying while still holding onto that stoner “whoa” factor. “An installation with objects, video and sound. Ping pong balls fly out of the buckets and perform actions that seem impossible in reality.”
For more info on Egill Sæbjörnsson please check out his site.
