human tide recreates long-lost marcel duchamp artwork at sea

in 2010, a long-lost marcel duchamp work was discovered in a norfolk, england junk shop. inside a book signed by the late master were 100-year old instructions for a piece he called ‘la maree humaine’, a reference found in the study drawings created by french-american artist his ’3 standard stoppages’. the illustration appeared to imagine people painting waves with light to capture the linear impressions made by the tide as it came in. beyond the technology at the time, duchamp’s long lost dream has become a reality for the ‘human tide’ project.
