A photograph of a 1976 multimedia sculpture by artist Shigeko Kubota entitled “Duchampiana: Nude Descending a Staircase.” Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s seminal modernist painting “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2” (1912), Kubota’s sculpture is a four-step staircase built out of wood. Square video monitors are inserted into the front face of each step, each displaying a blue-tinted video of a figure walking down a staircase. The sculpture is shown on the diagonal and sits directly on a tan, linoleum floor, with a flat, white wall behind it.
