Subject matter
This work was part of a portfolio of 30 works, created as a fund-raising effort for the project Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). The project was partially-funded by the director of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm at the time. Unlike the rest of the works in this portfolio, this screenprint is printed on an album cover and on the label of the accompanying vinyl album label. Depicted in this scene is one of Segal's sculptures, titled "The Dry Cleaning Store" (1964, Smithsonian Institution). The image of this work transforms into a representation of his encounter with Marcel Duchamp's 1946-66 work "Etant Donnés" (Philadelphia Museum of Art) that Segal narrates on the accompanying record. On the back of the record cover, a quote from the recently-passed artist—Duchamp had died in 1968—about Segal states, "With Segal it's not a matter of the found object, it's the chosen object. Marcel Duchamp". By combining his work, that explores ideas of everday life and culture, and the oral description to Duchamp's Surrealist sculpture, Segal creates his own artistic lineage and pays homage to the late, great artist. 

Physical Description
At the center of this printed record cover is a scene that shows a figure bent over and leaning on a table at the middle of an interior space. A neon sign hangs in front of the wall on the left side and reads "1 / hour / cleaning". Behind the leaning figure on the wall is a framed image showing a white dress. The sleeve is numbered and signed by the artist.
