The camera moves through the museum at a steady pace, some things go on steadily while the staff and visitors are frozen in action. Framis made this work in 2006 to explore what would happen if we stopped what we always do, day after day, hour after hour. This artistic experiment seemed to have become a reality in the recent past. We were halted, waiting for a way for the world to keep on turning. Fortunately, the employees and visitors can now get moving again. We can go back to the museum and close to art.
