Big Picture

Create your own screen test. For Andy Warhol’s famous Screen Tests, he instructed his subjects to sit still for about three minutes, the length of time it took for a roll of 16mm film to run through his stationary, silent Bolex camera. He then projected the film in slow motion, giving it a dreamlike stillness. Visitors to The Warhol can make their own screen tests using a computer touch screen and some tech help from the museum.
