Salt Seller - The Writings of Marcel Duchamp (Marchand du Sel)
Reading about things like Duchamp's ideas behind "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even" was probably a big stimulus for me at age 22. It seems like it wd've influenced my own sculpture "Frame of Reference" & an associated work "Policy Blueprint" but, maybe not, b/c it seems to me that I made them before I read this bk. Then again, I probably read Schwarz's huge bk on Duchamp before I made those pieces so we're back to Duchamp again. At any rate, Duchamp's love of puns & their capacity for resisting definition by being fluidly ALIVE as well as his Cabbalistic creation of complex structural underpinnings are both of central importance to me.
