Asaf Alexander – Bur-Da Chess pieces. The project deals with the analysis of shapes from traditional clothing patterns while creating a manipulation using CAD software. Asaf scanned clothing patterns from the “Burda” magazine and used the Revolve function on them, which transforms a contour line into a three-dimensional object. With various clothing patterns, such as a ball gown, an apron or a pantsuit, chess pieces were formed, which blur the visual values of the familiar pieces. The differentiation between black and white, and masculinity and femininity is blurred and new values of equality and co-existence are cast into the chess pieces.
