Why did you not sneeze, Mme. Duchamp?
- ↑ "The cage with sugar cubes is called Why not sneeze ... ? and, of course the title seems weird to you since there's really no connection between the sugar cubes and a sneeze ... First of all there's the dissociational gap between the idea of sneezing and the idea of ... 'Why not sneeze?' because after all, you don't sneeze at will; you usually sneeze in spite of your will. So, the answer to the question, Why not sneeze? is simply that you can't sneeze at will! And then there's the literary side if I may call it that ... but 'literary' is such a stupid word ... it doesn't mean anything ... but at any rate there's the marble with its coldness, and this meant that you can even say you're cold, because of the marble, and all of the associations are permissible." (Marcel Duchamp)
