Locking lips with the Mona Lisa

Waiting in line, fighting for a view, photographing the backs of other tourists in the Louvre…  it seems like here might be other things to do on a Tuesday midday in Paris. How does locking eyes with a known masterpiece change us? If you can view her online, then isn’t that a little more intimate than at a distance? If you believe what you read about the nature of atomic matter, seeing something changes both the viewer and the object. Better keep your eyes open and pay attention.
