a ready-made mirror
La mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires, même (The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even) aka The Large Glass by Marcel Duchamp. 1915 to 1923.
In the bachelors realm of the large glass hover three oculist witnesses. If their names were form derived they might be called Ray, Concentric, and Spoke.
This is the story of Spoke.
Spoke was reimagined as a co-optic organism freed from the two-dimensional construct of the large glass.
A repurposed mirror was chosen to reflect an observer.
Its spokes were revealed through a removal process: The protective paint backing was chemically removed and the excess silver was acid washed away.
The body was derived from a geometrical progression of the mirror’s form about its diameter. An anomaly was introduced causing an organic shift leading to its present state as the oculist witness. This is realized in multiple laminations of poplar and aluminum bound by epoxy membranes. A 3-wheeled carriage was introduced to guide the oculus and allow rotation by an observer thereby altering it’s perception.
The oculist witness as ready-made becomes a mirror being named so by the observer.
It is then the observer whom the story is about.
