    Though I don’t have a punching bag in my house, I will say that the concept is creative and the execution looks flawless. The most I can do with the white canvas on my end is make squiggly lines by holding down the left mouse button and moving my mouse around.
    I also like how your title is a reference to the Punch-Out!! video game.

    I really enjoyed this installation. As someone who enjoys doing all kinds of physical activities, the idea of taking something like boxing and adding a creative element really stood out to me. In addition, considering the current issues we are currently facing as a society, I like that you were able to create something that revolves not only around physical health and fitness but also relieving stress, and providing an outlet for people to express their creativity in a unique way.
