1964 – Empire – just over 8 hours. Very little happens.
1963 – Sleep – over 5 hours.

Challenges for the spectator: boredom, pain, etc.

I like boring things.

Kirsten Dunne

historically, you know, we’re often seen as a profession that says no to access, we want to cover everything up, and keep it in a dark room, that’s actually quite the opposite of what we want to do. We want to open up access, and make sure as many objects are seen as possible. But with this endless proviso, that we do want to try and preserve this for future generations.
