The Third Glass is a speculative, spatial-digital object based on Marcel Duchamp’s The Large Glass.

The project has been produced in the framework of the Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC) 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. The project launch was accompanied by a series of talks on architecture and the arts in relation to AR/VR, and guests included Sanford Kwinter and Liam Young.

In The Third Glass, each element in Duchamp’s Large Glass becomes a three-dimensional form, animated in accordance with notes in Duchamp’s Green Box.

The Third Glass: A Virtual Reality Homage to Marcel Duchamp, in collaboration with the Moderna Museet, was also exhibited by Stockholm School of Economics Art Initiative, in Stockholm.
