This piece was partly paying homage to Robert Rauschenberg's Erased de Kooning Drawing, partly criticising what constitutes an art experience, especially in the context of an art institution.

From the time the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opened until it closed, I stood in front of a famous work, only inches away from it, effectively blocking the piece from being viewed for the whole day.
