To design this sculpture I played checkers with local youth at Community Centers, After-School Programs, and Church Luncheons. I chose to make Checker Brick House from one of these games played between two young brothers, beloved in the community, but who have sadly moved away.

Every checker on each turn of the two brother’s two-dimensional checkerboard was translated into a brick. These bricks were then stacked to create a three-dimensional sculpture that represents the state of their checker game from beginning to end.

To help fund this project I ran a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. You can check that out here.
