British artist Robin Price has created an art installation with thousands of LEDs beneath a ping-pong table.

This is not a table is a digital art display set up in The Digital Hub’s Digital Exchange building on Crane Street between 17 and 28 April.

The installation is a ping-pong table designed with 4,000 LEDs under frosted polycarbonate.

Each bounce of the ping-pong ball triggers stunning audio-visual effects programmed in code, so those who come to play will be dazzled by thousands of dancing lights.

Price believes the installation speaks for itself and hopes that people come, play ping-pong and have a really good time.

“It’s pure sugar, really. It’s just pure joy in ping-pong form,” he said.
