The Third Glass
The Third Glass is a speculative, spatial-digital object based on Marcel Duchamp’s The Large Glass. The project was produced for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). Its first staging was at the Städelschule Rundgang 2017, the art academy’s annual student exhibition. It was also presented at the biennial NODE Forum for Digital Arts on July 1, 2017. In The Third Glass, each element in Duchamp’s Large Glass becomes a three-dimensional form, animated in accordance to notes in Duchamp’s Green Box. One software application presents The Third Glass in AR on phones/tablets in any given setting; a computer software application for VR places the visitor totally immersed inside The Third Glass.
