Title /
Encounters; finding myself

Designer name /
Heesun Jung

About /
Heesun Jung is a Korean artist and living in Canada and recently graduated graphic design at OCAD University in Toronto

Brief Description /
This chess game set is asking the question, “How do we make a choice between A and B”
During our lives, we are constantly encountering ourselves through others. The reinterpreted form, colour and the material of the chess game will help to initiate a problem-solving process in choosing between A and B by asking the players to engage in a game that is unexpected.

Heesun will be joined at Chessfest by artists Seyeon Park and Jade Go who will be doing sketches of visitors to turn your profile into a chess piece. Markers will be available to colour in the drawings.
