The ping and the pong of it.

Artists Doug Fridlund and Mikael Alcock got to be Youtube celebs just by making their art. And their art it turns out involves putting ping-pong balls in their mouths and standing next to famous paintings in high end museums like the Tate. No sooner do they start a ping-pong-performance than the cameras are out and the images start piling up on Twitter and Facebook. Ping Pong, art and photographing in art museums. It all adds up to an OTN Saturday movie time special.
