Calvin Tomkins writes that when WHN “was being exhibited in the Pasadena Museum in 1963, Duchamp authorized Walter Hopps to pull back the twine and look inside, so Hopps has become the only one in on the secret. Duchamp has never wanted to know.” I wonder if Hopps is still alive? If so, could he be convinced to reveal the hidden noise? Coerced? No no no no no no no. I’m losing focus. Must concentrate on the problem at hand, not create new ones.
