An industrial light table in the center of the gallery displays the archive – two oak boxes holding 72 glass plates. The units recall medical specimens and photographic plates to be stacked, reordered and scattered by the visitor in a further dispersion of form.
Light spills onto the floor from under the table. On the back wall projections detailing the wooden shelves and cast iron stair-ways of an old archive in Den Haag can be seen. A vintage slide projector offers small, intensely saturated images near the floor. At times there is a still image of Duchamp's hand reaching for a chess piece and moving it across the black and white board.
The Memory Tape of The Day preceded this project as a kind of "working drawing" for the piece.
The piece is heard through a speaker at the entrance to the space.
The multi channel audiowork includes text from a self-help telephone service, Matt Dariau's jazz saxophone riff on Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, bulletins from Jean Cocteau's Orphée, and a stream of (barely) consious(ness) narration.
