No ball game is a Participative Public Performance performed by the public and the artist. The performance takes the form of an interactive and musical ball game and last from 15 to 20 mm, depending on people abilities. This piece was created in February 2008. No ball game is not just about interactivity but also about the relation between the gallery, the artist and the public through art.
Thomas Michalak wants to bring the joy of playing/experimenting in the gallery. He wants to merge the performer, the public and the prop. A ball game is what occurs to be the best way. It’s simple, ancient, innate and appeals to almost everyone. It is not about creating a proper musical tool but a catalyst or extrapolation of the action, energy and gallery’s atmosphere. No ball game creates the soundtrack of a hysterical and joyful group performance.
