Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs is a 3,5 meter tall interpretation of the Chrysler Building in New York.

The sculpture contains a ball-track, where the viewer can insert a ball which will then run down the track and re-emerge in an opening at the bottom of the sculpture.

The title, Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs - also a song by The Cramps describing a museum-related love affair - refers to Marcel Duchamp's well-known cubist painting from 1913.

One viewer commented during the making of the sculpture that the sound reminded him of high-heeled shoes, which, via The Cramps and Duchamp inserted an obscure idea of art-world observation and subverted behavior into the piece.
