The Harmony of Geometry and Theology was installed in the "Fakespace" show at HERE Gallery, NYC, from January 20 - February 17, 2001. The diagram shows the extended range of the knights. The game was played by Jason Ditmars and Brian Duggan over various evenings in December, 2000. After 482 moves and around 30 hours of play, Brian had a strong lead in material, but the game was far from over.

The large drawing began as the actual playing surface, with simple light and dark squares in a 48x48 grid. The colored diagrams of all of the moves were added later, with white moves shown in red ink, and black moves shown in blue ink.
