“The cool geometry of the chessboard with its dark and light squares is a given, fixed grid. Placed upon it, in juxtaposition, there is the cast-clay army of dark and light organic shapes: 24 “pawns” of equal importance.

Casting usually produces uniform pieces of a decided number of the edition, but because I used a rubber pacifier as my mold, each piece I pushed out of the pacifier emerged as a unique piece. It was fascinating to see how the only change in the process, the level of force, as material and mold remained the same, became a clear embodiment of my concept of repetition, summed up by Heraclites: "You can't step into the same river twice."

NO game, the title, intended to negate any literary association. The piece is not about chess and it is not about game; however, it does have affinity on an intellectual level with Marcel Duchamp. 

Interpretation, as the shapes on the board do, varies by each and every spectator.”
