The shape of the hat/object is taken from a photograph of a ventilator on Fire Island, New York, similar to one used by Marcel Duchamp as a ‘ready-made’ in 1915. An etching by Duchamp, made in 1964, is the only record of this now lost work. The object was inscribed; ‘Pulled at Four Pins’ a literal translation of the french idiom, ‘Tiré à quatre epingles’. The english equivalent ‘Dressed up to the nines’ translated literally into french gives; ‘Habillé jusqu’ aux neufs’ - Webbs’ title. A ‘toil’ is a prototype garment made by a designer from light weight cotton duck. ‘Toil’ from the Latin; téla, meaning ‘web’ and ‘toil’ can also be phonetically punned, in english, with the word ‘twirl’.
