Lee Walton Plays The World (From His Phone)

For this three‐week exhibition, I played 40 simultaneous games of chess from my iPhone. These games lasted the entire duration of the show and required an average of 3‐4 hours of chess each day. In the museum space, 40 physical chessboards were collected from the community and put on display. The positioning of each chess piece in Florida was changed daily to correspond with my daily moves from North Carolina.

I also organized two chess lectures to occur during the run of the show, of which included an art historian, and a national chess master.
