Rosa Tse-Levy lives on the Third Floor of Ternky Towers
- Rosa is missing a 12-headed self-portrait statue, which is on the Ninth Floor.
Origin of Name
- Rosa Tse-Levy is a pun (on a pun, no less) on Duchamp's female alter ego, Rrose Selavy, "eros c'est la vie" or "Love, that's life." [Posted by jeagleton on the HitContests website, 02 May 2010.] Duchamp is the artist who created the sculpture called "Fountain," made of a urinal and considered an icon of the Da Da art movement. [There is an homage to this piece in the bathroom on the 13th floor.]
- I am wondering if her name is a pun. "Rosa Tse-Levy" = "Rose a Sea Levee"? There's a Highway 445 in Louisiana. [Posted by Everything_Rises on the HitContests website, 22 April 2010.]
- nb: at the end of the narration, the only mention of the woman of the third floor by name refers to her as "Ms. Sweet".
