Art and Design: The rotoreliefs of Marcel Duchamp





via The Blue Lantern

I was an art major in college and clearly remember having to write a paper on Marcel Duchamp, but some how shamefully missed this part of his art career. Leave it to my Pinterest stream to introduce me to the wonderful world of rotoreliefs! Duchamp's rotoreliefs are a series of lithographs he made in the 1920s that are two dimensional images that give an optical illusion of movement  and depth when played on a turntable. Very cool! You can even watch a short film that Duchamp made himself to demonstrate the rotoreliefs. Enjoy!
