Unconventional Chess Set / School Of Visual Arts

Submitted By Nikki Woods

Description

Chess set redesign made from Vintage Hot Combs and Afro Hair picks.
Concept is based on the history of African American struggles with having corse hair; considered to be unprofessional and unappealing, along with many other racial description. Board uses a mirror to reflect on the past and to give hope to those who are insecure about their roots. The hot comb was made popular by Madam C.J Walker, therefore the board game also pays homage to her.

Objective

Take the idea of the classic chess set and redesign it using unique objects.
