THE BALANCE & THE GAME UNFOLDING
The production and exhibition of these designs sets up a context for dialog.
The dialog between creatives on the subject of balance and how best to achieve it.
For the Coal project this dialog will be framed within a gentlemanly game of chess - a tradition of playful exchange famed for ritual, beauty, richness and the tipping of a balance back and forth between players.
More than that, the chessboard can serve as a rosetta stone for discourse, anchoring a discussion or debate between players on other subjects even as they move their pieces across its iconic checkered pattern.
