Bot Descending a Staircase
About this artwork
I had the most fun making this piece because it was my first attempt at abstraction in collage, which I have now discovered is incredibly fun, and because the subject matter is so silly. It is based on the famous Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 by Marcel Duchamp, which I really enjoy. With my piece, I got to borrow his style and subject and make it hilarious by substituting a robot for the nude, and completely ridiculous by making the robot's mode of transport a single wheel. It was an all-around great time.The piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled masonite panel with matte medium. The work comes wired to hang.
