11 seconds

11 seconds, the time for a work of art. In different quantitative studies, scientists have examined how much time visitors in museums spend with the collection, the exhibition and the individual works of art, and which factors influence this duration. The average time spent with an artwork lies between 10 and 15 seconds.


In ’11 seconds’, Charlotte Bouckaert wants to study 1 photograph with her audience for 1 hour, the duration of the performance. That photograph shows the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. A generic exterior view of the museum on a clear day, photographed from the opposite side of 5th Avenue.
