Mark Byrne

In his article, Mark Byrne explains the discrepancy between the intent of Marina Abramovic's work in the MoMa and the reality of the work. Her intent is to give undivided attention to a singular person, but by allowing VIP privileges to celebrities she is telling the crowd that there is a difference in the "quality" of her attention. That there are people more worthy of her attention than others. This informs us that the time a person spends in line is actually inversely proportionate to the quality of the time with the artist.

It is hard to make a judgment on how this article relates to my work as it is a direct comment on someone else's work. I guess I hope my work is more thought out so as to be less hypocritical.
