My instinct at museums is always to touch my nose to the canvas to study brushstrokes or the combination of colours to achieve a particular effect, but of course, there are security guards and ropes and alarms. I like the idea that I can view a work of art privately and study it at my own pace: that I can highlight, and rearrange, make collages and side-by-side comparisons unencumbered by the hallowed space of the ‘museum’. I think that in that sense, technology really democratises works that were traditionally inaccessible to all
