9 Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas

The Illuminating Gas. It consists of an old wooden door, bricks, velvet, twigs gathered by Duchamp on his walks in the park, leather stretched over a metal armature of a female form, glass, linoleum, an electric motor, etc. Duchamp prepared a ‘Manual of Instructions’ in a 4-ring binder which explains and illustrates the process of assembling/disassembling the piece.... It was not revealed to the public until July of 1969, (several months after Duchamp's death), when it was permanently installed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. No photographs of the interior of the piece or of the notebook of instructions were allowed to be published by the museum for at least 15 years. The viewer of the piece first steps onto a mat in front of the door, which activates the lights, motor, etc., and then peers through two ‘peepholes’ to view the construction behind the door. The voyeur strains, unsuccessfully, to see the ‘face’ of the eerily realistic nude female form which lies supine on a bed of twigs, illuminated gas lamp in hand.
