Two individuals play chess, while channeling the spirits of Marcel Duchamp and Bobby Fischer.

Best two out of three.

In 2008, I wanted to challenge chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer to a match. The former world champion, who had been exiled in Iceland for several years, passed away before anything transpired. What resulted instead was this project, commissioned originally for Sequences: Real Time Festival in Reykjavik.
