Save the Balls!

Initiated by 2much for the first time in 2008 the project "save theballs" is meant to provide a violence free and safe shelter for abusedping pong balls. Month after month, millions and millions of those poorballs are cruely abused by hard beatings from the ping pong-racket andsome balls have to endure gruesome smash-beats with up to 170 km/h,which deforms the ball up to 25% percent of its original size.2much is dedicated to stop this unnecessary violence and begs younot to look the other way! Every ball bought from 2much is one moreball in safety.
These sculpures were made during, the very hard time, where I stopped smoking and was searching for a meaningful alternative... Mysolution was to buy a package of those balls and everytime I had theurge to smoke a cigarette, I would start painting one of those balls.Since I was used to smoke A LOT, soon after a short while I had a verylarge number of those balls and were already filling them with cottonand glued them together to create "THE TOTEMS"
