Your Daily Duchamp

In the mid 1920's Duchmap amused himself by producing a series of rotating glass
plates some of which contained puns, but were designed to create an optical effect.
He called them Rotoreliefs and Man Ray documented them in a film called
Anemic Cinema
In 1966, he created a multiple edition version of them. A portable record player  in a suitcase.
He used the idea of a suitcase throughout his life. At one point, he made an edition of his entire
work miniaturized with an "operating manual" called The Green Valise
Rotoreliefs”, 1966
