Is the human in this exhibit entirely isolated?
Close examination of the objects behind the human demonstrates he has at least one companion.

Does he also enjoy producing a lower-quality image?
His process is more important than the product.
Is this what humans call “living in the moment?”
Could one argue that obsession with immediate activity, without concern for its consequences, is causing their material shortages?
You’re asking a lot of this image.
