Historical chess perspective

Posted By Josh Dillon
07.01.2009

The above video, produced by Boym Partners, shows a carefully choreographed interpretation of world events in the century’s past. Major disasters; great achievements all executed on a masterfully played chess board. Each piece represents a certain moment in history, for better or worse.

Not sure how I feel about the outcome, or the presentation for that matter, but I thought it was worth a look.

What does Layer Tennis even mean?

Design talent from across the globe competes in a one-on-one, no holds barred, live action design contest, whereby participants are given a topic, and then compete by sending a working file back and forth in fifteen minute increments, or “volleys.”
