Using the building exactly as he found it, Bunn installed a circle of viewing devices in the geographic center of the museum space. From this vantage point, he sighted and recorded details that gave clues to the building’s various aesthetic, geographic, and historical associations and served to ”frame” the viewer’s attention.
