Three Dimensional Duchamp Glass

The Tate Education Department asked me to choose a work in the Tate and remake it in a way that makes it more accessible to the public. I choose Richard Hamilton's copy of the Large Glass by Duchamp. After researching Duchamp's ideas I made a three-dimensional version of his two-dimensional glass. Two bicycles with generators were attached and produced electricity to activate the components. i.e. The woman's bike was connected to the bride at the top half of the glass; the man's bike activated the Malic molds and turned the chocolate grinder.
