The irreverent Duchamp, as all Dadaists, dealt with life as if it existed to be unraveled. In spite of his evident skill and training, he challenged the notion that either were prerequisites to success in the art world. He often framed common, everyday objects as being art, referring to the pieces as "Readymades" given their universally accessible stature in society. By taking an object one would not otherwise give a second glance, Duchamp had his audience wonder about the significance of beauty in art as well, or rather, to what extent we misinterpret beauty. If an albeit unconventional beauty is within Duchamp's bicycle wheel (pictured above), then what caused us to overlook said beauty? This type of conceptualization was a vehicle for Dadaist thinking-- the undoing of art as a science, the reduction of art back to a theory.
