These adorable art pieces want your attention. This gif shows Aparna Rao’s installation, “Imperial Monochromes,” an assortment of moving panels imitating paintings in a museum. The panels sense when a viewer enters the room, and, as if getting busted slacking off, they snap into strict symmetry. When they sense they have lost the viewer’s attention, the panels relax back into chaos.
