Lift / hover chess

Lift
Lift

In peaceful society war is seen as an exceptional circumstances. But in fact life in peace is an exclusion not the war. In chess game you find a situation of war that the player normally does not see. In the figurative sense "Lift" confronts the player with power existing at war and transform it into materials. There are thin graphite discs showing you human fragility. Strong magnets compose the board. The two magnetic poles reject, so tokens hover in the air!!
