Via swissmiss:

In 1913, Marcel Duchamp took found objects from the streets and placed them in museums. 96 years later, if Duchamp were alive, he may want to do the very opposite.Duchamp Reloaded, a new project by Ji Lee.

The bicycle chain is a wonderful touch though a little to preciously placed at the bottom of the piece. You may remember Lee for his Bubble Project, where he slapped cartoon speech bubbles on advertising around the city inviting people to write in their commentary.
