3D Duchamp Chess Pieces

For the Playing Duchamp project, I made custom 3D chess pieces to resemble Duchamp’s hard-carved originals.

The 3D-rendered versions (designed by Daisuke Imai):

In the Playing Duchamp project, I have reprogrammed a chess computer to play like Marcel Duchamp, which anyone can play online.

And the only documentation of the original set:

At this point, I’m considering sending them to the 3D printer to make them real.

By the way, if you are looking for custom 3D work, I’d highly recommend working with Daisuke.
