Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. -Albert Einstein

Roue de bicyclette, Marcel Duchamp -1913-

“…Duchamp explained, he had produced Bicycle Wheel because he enjoyed watching the wheel spinning (explaining the stool). The spinning wheel, he went on, was as enthralling a flames in a fireplace (which he would have used if he had a fireplace). Whether that was a joke or a calculated move is hard to tell.”
