Birch & Walnut

    This project might be more artisanal than conceptual, however, the hands do not work without the mind and neither do ideas appear without a previous conceptual development.. This story started with a fellow exchange student from the Netherlands, Michiel Van Gageldonk, during our autumn at Konstfack University in Sweden. The last weekend before we both returned to our home countries, we thought we had to do something with the scrap pieces of material that we had collected during our stay.

    We had some left-over birch and walnut, as well as some pipes of steel, and that Saturday we decided to create something that represented how we first had met: over a game of Chess.

    Here is the video of the making.
