Damien Hirst (b. 1965)
Embracing the threshold
This work by Damien Hirst features a piece of paper, a glass of water and a ping pong ball. The ball floating in the clear liquid has a minimalist quality. The diagram drawn on the paper shows multiple ways for the ping pong ball, the glass and the water to interact, suggesting that the installation can exist in a number of forms. By exploring the differing physical appearance that occurs through small adjustments to the paper, glass, water levels and ball, this work explores the potential for change that different interactions might effect, embracing the transformative potential of our own world and relationships.
