Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel and London Eye

Duchamp called his work Bicycle Wheel "an assisted readymade". Readymade are objects manufactured for some other purpose, presented by an artist as a work of art. Marcel Duchamp, who originated this concept, selected and signed many ordinary objects. He occasionally altered these objects (sometimes called assisted readymades), which the Bicycle Wheel is a well-known example.
