Metropolitan Museum, New York, USA.
View Watch Look See  (1995)

This film was put together as an essay for a graduate seminar on the function of the museum in contemporary society. It was an attempt at making sense of art in an institutional context. While thousands of art seekers paraded through the museums of New York at Christmas time, I watched the spectacle from the sidewalk.
