Torben Ulrich's note:
2. Inter-play of energies, voices, vectors. Red ink, black ink on rice paper. White ball, from acrylic. Black pen, as marks of text. Grey pen, sealing empty play. Five days in making. Red ink, then black ink from different ropes, again dipped, skipped onto paper lying flat on ground. White ball, hit by racquet, sent horizontally to paper nailed to wall.
Multiple readings, say: habit of serving as self-serving, black rope (subject) desiring to dominate red rope (other), be victorious, come out on top; red ball (object) to be struck, strapped to strategies of the expected; text implying a turning, a facing of play rather than outcome, a relearning: skipping (out of) the dual.
Another reading: playful marks on rice paper.
