why does multimedia art generally suck so bad to view with your friend at the museum?

Answer: it’s too complicated!

More Answer: you can look at a painting or photograph or sculpture and it grabs you right away. Sure you can study it at length if you want, but you don’t have to in order to have a reaction. Multimedia is a combination of forms, and almost by definition, this makes processing it a more cerebral and active task. Such tasks are better suited to careful, undivided attention, like at home on your computer.
