Jennifer Shahade & The ChessBard: A Blindfold Exhibition

On September 18th, 2015, two time U.S. Women’s Chess Champion Jennifer Shahade and I played a blindfold chess exhibition at Ryerson University’s Student Learning Center; both of our moves were translated in poems in real time. You can find a full recap by Joshua Arthur Peter White-Crummey at the Ryersonian, complete with additional pictures plus video (included below here) of the event and interviews with the participants at http://www.ryersonian.ca/blindfolded-chess-match-transformed-into-digital-poetry-at-slc/.

As well, I’ll be reading at the Art Bar Series in Toronto on Sept. 29th at 7:00. The address can be found at the series’ website: http://www.artbar.org/.
