How long do you look at a piece of art in a museum? The question intrigued Mexican media artist Rafael Lozano-Hammer enough that he created an installation for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney that forces viewers to take stock of their own interaction with art and museums.
Using a row of measuring tapes and motion sensors, Lozano-Hammer’s work changes and literally grows based on the amount of time viewers stand looking at it. Hourly, a sheet is printed tracking the amount of time the work has been viewed.
