Duchamp recreation

It's an odd painting, but it really does create the illusion of movement. I've had a go myself using the children descending the staircase.

Difficult to create but strobe flash is a wonderfull thing!

Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2, was painted by Duchamp in 1912. When it was first exhibited at the legendary Armory Show in New York (February 17-March 15, 1913), it caused an uproar which both outraged many people and made Duchamp famous in America. One critic called it "an explosion in a shingle factory."

Easy to see how people supposedly take photos of ghosts isn't it?


I know, even the experts can't tell a fake from a real ghost now. I actually at this moment trying to get on a ghost hunt with www.mostghosts.com they are locals!
