    How interesting to read people’s reactions: “more dress, less curator!” Like an open comments box, highlighting that perennial problem of pleasing a wide public–now made global by the internet.

    I think it’s a great video, its very value in the visual inclusion of the curator (keeper?) and her interpretation, ring-fiddling or no!

    Thanks for sharing it, Selina.
