<mez> from a duchamp site
<mez> Its full title is La Mariee mise a nu par ses
celibataires, meme, or The Bride Stripped Bare by Her
Bachelors, Even. Note the "Even." This sly adverb, thrown
<PbN> >del< >-aop< >list-aop< >wi 
<mez> discourage literal readings, has also been subjected to
endless analysis. One explanation is that it should be read as
a pun on "m'aime," meaning "loves me"--that is to
<mez> say, the bride being stripped by these anonymous
bachelors really loves Marcel Duchamp. The tribe can't resist
looking for clues to the man in such discoveries, but
<mez> Duchamp alw
<steve_d> leaves is leaves is lcd
<PbN> .c s .t c s .i c -accusage-acc<# >< >t 
 <mez> Duchamp always maintained that his odd little adverb had
no meaning whatsoever, that it was just "fun and poetry in my
own way," that "the word meme came to me
<mez> without even looking for it." It was simply a humorous
aside, something like the "already" in "enough, already."

 <mez> The mechanico-erotic language of the notes on the bride
has no visual counterpart in The Large Glass itself. In fact,
the upper glass panel that is the bride's domain
<mez> shows nothing that even remotely suggests female anatomy,
clothed or unclothed. What we see instead is a group of
abstract, vaguely insectile shapes on the
<mez> left-hand side, connected to a large cloudlike form that
stretches all the way across the top. Each element on the left
has a name, although even today, after seventy
<mez> years of study and

<mez> after seventy
<mez> years of study and conjecture, it is hard to pin down
exactly which is which. The large form at the top left is the
pendu femelle, a decidedly unglamorous term
<mez> meaning "hanging female object"; close examination
shows that it does indeed hang from a painted hook at the top
of the Glass.

<mez> Underneath that is a motor with quite
<mez> feeble cylinders and its reservoir of love gasoline,
a sort of timid-power, or automobiline, which, as you will
recall, is secreted from the bride's sexual glands. Just to
<mez> the right of these forms lies the wasp, or sex cylinder,
a flask-shaped object that narrows at the top and is capped by
a pair of snail-like antennae.

I think it is the desire-magneto; others have located this

internal combustion cycle is not really clear to me nor, I

<Surd> "He also insisted that it was not a picture. In one of
the working notes that he collected and published in The Green
Box, Duchamp refers to it as a "delay." Use "delay" instead
of picture or painting ... It's merely a way of succeeding in
no longer thinking that the thing in question is a picture--to
make a delay of it in the most general way possible, not so
much in the different meanings in which delay can be taken,
but rather in their indecisive reunion. "

<mez> Moving to the lower half of the Glass, the domain of the
bachelors, we come into a very different world. The forms here
are precisely drawn and not a bit abstract,
<mez> and their functions are spelled out in terms that often
sound pitying or contemptuous. While the principal forms of the
bride, according to Duchamp, are more or less
<mez> large or small, the forms of the bachelor machine are
mensurable, and their relative positions on the glass have
been plotted according to old-fashioned
