Tilda Swinton is sleeping in a fitted glass box at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) this month.
Museum goers are able to peer in on Tilda Swinton while standing just feet from her padded glass chamber as she appears to lightly turn in slumber.
The Oscar-winning actress’ month-long performance art of public napping titled, The Maybe, is said to run the museum’s entire day – last seen totaling seven hours – but on days randomly chosen and said to be unknown even to the museum’s staff.
“Museum staff doesn’t know she’s coming until the day of, but she’s here today. She’ll be there the whole day,” a MoMA employee told Gothamist.
Tilda Swinton’s raised glass box will also move around the museum, rarely if ever appearing in the same location according to the source.

On her first day Tilda Swinton was seen lying fully clothed while wearing jeans, sneakers and a buttoned up shirt.
Various photographs of her display showed her in just a few changing positions, leaving open questions on her full state of consciousness.
“I feel bad for her. It’s physically demanding. Is she just nocturnal for a month?” 17-year-old Than Fuirst of Manhattan told the New York Post.
A white card adorning a wall near Tilda Swinton’s aquarium labels her like any other piece of artwork in the building, showing the work’s title, artist, dates, and materials used.
In her case it reads: “Living artist, glass, steel, mattress, pillow, linen, water, and spectacles.”
This isn’t the first time the world has been offered a very public eye to Tilda Swinton’s sleeping, however.
Her art installation, The Maybe, first débuted in 1995 at London’s Serpentine Gallery.
Tilda Swinton later took her one-act to Rome’s Museuo Barraco the following year.
Sarah Jessica Parker showed off prominent veins on her feet when she turned up to Gordon Parks Centennial Gala in New York City last evening.
It seems that the bulging veins, which can also be seen on Sarah Jessica Parker’s hands, may be down to her very thin frame.
However despite the flaw on her feet, which were clad in sweet purple satin court shoes, Sarah Jessica Parker, 47, looked stunning for the bash.
She teamed the shoes with a velvet jacket and patterned pink dress.

The event was held at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art, alongside a host of fashion’s finest.
US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld and Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld were all in attendance.
Meanwhile photographer Pater Beard posed up with talk show host Anderson Cooper.
However, it wasn’t just fashion favorites who were guests at the glamorous event.

Russell Simmons rocked up with a mystery brunette date who was courting attention in a very racy lace dress.
The frock boasted cut-out sides and showed off the black underwear the beauty was sporting underneath.
Record producer Clive Davis, singer Josh Groban and politician Harold Ford, Jr. were also on hand for the gala.
In 2008 Sarah Jessica Parker admitted that playing Carrie Bradshaw and sporting endless high heels damaged her feet.
The actress said: “I’ve basically just destroyed my feet. So they feel nothing. I have no feeling in my feet.”
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, Sweden’s culture minister, faces furious calls to resign after she was pictured cutting a “racist” black cake designed like a native African woman.
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth had appeared at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm when she was invited to cut the cake which was designed like a naked African woman.
The Swedish minister cut pieces from the black cake, which had blood-red sponge and was designed to highlight the issue of female genital mutilation.
Despite the intentions of the bizarre cake, however, critics described it as a “racist spectacle”, and demanded Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth resigned for participating in the “tasteless” event.
The Association for African Swedes said the cake was a crude racist caricature which “makes a mockery of racism”.

Kitimbwa Sabuni, a spokesperson for the group, told Swedish news agency TT: “To say that you did this for a good cause only makes the mockery of people who are victims of racism and of circumcision worse.”
He told a Swedish newspaper Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth’s participation in a dubious event with cannibalistic overtones showed her “incompetence and lack of judgment”.
Makode Linde, the artist who came up with the cake, had placed his own head at the top of the cake and said it had been misunderstood.
The black cake, part of an exhibition on World Art Day, was intended as part of the artist’s project illustrating degrading stereotypes of black people through history.
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, whose photograph cutting a piece of the cake was widely shown in Swedish media, said she understood why people would be offended by the incident.
She said in a statement: “I was invited to speak at World Art Day about the freedom of art and its right to provoke.
“And then they wanted me to cut into the cake. I don’t review art, but I can very well understand that this whole situation was misunderstood.”
