Duchamp’s Hole

Holes on to a hole. what is there to see about a hole?. A hole says Mademoiselle Selavy, is made for seeing, not for being seen. For a looking through, that’s what hole is. An opening, and perspicacity. So what did you see? I am talking about Duchamps inverted figure titled ‘”study for ‘Etant Donnes’!”.. I am not going to embark on his ‘given’ hole despite much interest in it but it gives me a lot of ideas about the hole in our mind about which I often use to talk a lot.
