p.s. Did anyone ever consider the title (fountain) to be of any significance? It doesn't require a big stretch of the imagination to figure out that, in slang, this choice of word for a title, may very well refer to "ejaculation". If this is the case then once again, the focus shifts away from the object towards the subject (the user). It's like a mirror, and the person in the mirror, especially in a public space, is made to feel self conscious to say the least. Had only Brian Eno (et al.) intuited this interpretation before urinating into "Fountain".
