I find that I lose myself the most in this painting. It works and doesn't all at the same time. It's that top right disk. The weird golden eye-thingy. What is that? Why is it staring at me? And what does it want?

This is also the painting that I first made me think, "What sorta data is on these floppy disks?" And does the artist try read that data? Two hours later, I am still staring at it still wondering the same thing and what it wants.
