He writes, "Picture and sound quality are exceptional, and while the sound is realistically loud, I never thought it was too loud. The running time is 30 minutes, but you can't hear or see all of "The Refusal of Time" from any one vantage point in the gallery. I moved through the space and experienced different aspects of the work. It's akin to walking around a sculpture; you can never take in the entirety of the piece in one exposure, and that's what makes "The Refusal of Time" so fascinating. I will definitely go back to experience it again and again."
