Duchamp CHESS

The project included the analysis of an artist and the application of his principles on the design and fabrication of a chess set. The artist analyzed was Marcel Duchamp and the main principles throughout his work are known to be repetition and appropriation. Based on these ideas, the chess pieces are constructed out of found hardware, such as door knobs and the chess grid is made using common staples.
