Examining the impact of games as tools for teaching social conformity and adaptation, Of Manual positions board games as conceivable master plans. A four-part textile work, that merges all classic game boards and pieces into an all-encompassing arsenal, is mounted on dolly-like instruments that can be quartered and scrambled. However, the strategic design of the textile, and the way in which it is separated between its distinct parts, restricts the player from ever holding the key to all possible moves.
