Art POV

After spending an afternoon at New York City’s magnificent Metropolitan Museum of Art this week, I had the odd experience of stumbling across artist/filmmaker Masashi Kawamura’s new blog “What They See”, which invites an encounter with the museum from a novel perspective. Instead of surveying the art, the artworks observe us. Kawamura challenges the museum visitor to engage with the paintings and sculptures as museum residents and characters with individual POVs.
