With Hidden Noise (1916)
Duchamp asked Walter Arensberg to place an object inside this ball of twine without telling him what it was. Arensberg only ever told one man, Walter Hopps, the secret, and Hopps took it to his grave. To this day, only a few conservators know of the object’s contents. The curators are never told, in order to preserve the mystery and legend.

It’s so true. It’s amazing how much debate this piece still inspires. Our university museum has a replica, and I often stand in front of it just grinning senselessly. Only Duchamp could make me that happy to be standing in front of a urinal :)

He would have loved the way you can see the shadow of the object in the background :)
