Actress Tilda Swinton sleeps in a box during a public show at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York on Saturday, March 23, 2013.

The Swinton glass box act is part of an “art performance piece” by the Scottish actress entitled “The Maybe.” MoMA staff say that she will be inside the glass for the whole day. They explained that “Museum staff doesn’t know she’s coming until the day of, but she’s here today. She’ll be there the whole day. All that’s in the box is cushions and a water jug.”

Obviously, Swinton decided to take her day’s nap inside the glass box.

Swinton is known for her unconventional ways of expressing art that include her latest MoMA project.

Several museum guests curiously watched Swinton while she was sleeping in the glass box placed in the middle of MoMA. Reports say that the location of the glass box will be randomly transferred in other areas of the museum.

This will be Swinton‘s third performance of “The Maybe.” Her previous acts were made at London‘s Serpentine Gallery in 1995, and another one in Rome.
