I consider myself pretty capable at table tennis but I think I would have to kindly back away from a game on the Intifada ping pong table. You would need a serious back hand and some powerful wrist action to be able to score over a six-foot brick wall. Of course, the table was not meant to be played on, but rather built as an art exhibit.
Created by Carlos No, the Intifada ping pong table represents the segregation and the boundaries set up in our society. He explains how physical boundaries can lead to a strong disconnect, even in highly populated areas. Looking at the table right now, I must say I feel pretty disconnected from my hand-eye coordination.
