A moving image. And a story about Portrait-Paintings being tired of tired looking museum visitors. Due to our modern ways of Media Consumption the average museum visitor is willing and able to spend only 6 seconds in front of a painting/a still image anymore. And that most of the information seen is lost afterwards anyway...
The Viewer of THIS „Painting“ is unfortunately forced to spend more than 5mins with this piece (=1/8000000 of his/her life).
