Jung in the World | Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth and Art with Lewis Hyde?πŸ“•πŸƒπŸŽ πŸ’πŸ’πŸ€‘

I have had so many synchs involving applesmonkeysturtles and Chicago over the last few months and couldn't figure out what tied them all together, until this podcast dropped onto my Apple Podcast playlist this morning from the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago
Trickster Makes This World:
Myth and Art
Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art
Paperback – February 16, 1999
I'm yet to finish writing up those posts, but as I do, I'll be referring back to this podcast/post, because it links them all together for me.
This door below is the door mentioned in the podcast.
When one door closes, the same door opens?
"A tall, thin door stands ajar – but it is also closed. In 1927 a carpenter, working to Marcel Duchamp’s specifications, installed a door in a corner of Duchamp’s studio at 11, rue Larrey, Paris. The apartment was small, and Duchamp wanted to solve the problem of not being able to close off the bathroom and bedroom from the main space. This was achieved by a clever design which proposed that a single door be inserted into the cramped corner where the two doorways were juxtaposed at a ninety-degree angle. This deployment of a single door for an area that seemed to require two meant that when the opening to the bedroom was fully closed, that to the bathroom remained open, and vice versa, thus countering the French saying that a door cannot be open and shut at the same time. Arturo Schwarz, in his The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp (Thames and Hudson, 1969) described this structure as a “Three-dimensional pun: a door which is permanently opened and shut at the same time” (p. 496)."
