16 x 16 inch ceramic chess set. White, unglazed, standing approx. 3 inches tall.
The Quantum Chess set, based on Richard Feynman’s metaphor for quantum mechanics, is a redesign of the classic board game based on 20th century science.
As each piece is both “subject” and “landscape” (piece & board), the set does away with the concept of Classical separation in favor of suggesting a perception of All as unified, yet variously manifested. The shape of the “landscape” comes from illustrated representations of quantum space-time, magnified, as seen in Hawking’s Brief History of Time.
