T.U.'s work with ball, rope, racquet, net and rice paper has its beginnings in 1971, when the Lions Club of Copenhagen asked a variety of politicians, actors, writers and others to make "a blue elephant" for a charity exhibit to benefit a senior center in Denmark.

Today, using primarily skipping rope and tennis net, racquet and ball, Ulrich explores play and the athletic event with ink and/or acrylic, predominantly on rice paper. In some earlier series, he often first skipped an inked rope onto the rice paper, which was placed on the ground. When dry, the paper was then posted or held against a wall and an inked ball was played (not placed), as a sign of ongoing playfulness. Later, a text, might have been added. In the most recent series, a text was often the first step, followed by a served or stroked net, then rope, then ball.

Some works are photographed and the shapes, colors and textures are sampled or played with further digitally and printed on rice paper or other media.

Some works available for purchase can be found on the site Balligraphies.
