(Looks like I made up a new word, "victum"! Hmmm, how shall I define
it...) :-)

I have an art piece in which barriers implied by lines painted on the
floor separate the viewer from a clear view of a TV screen. The viewer
can only see its the blue light shining on the wall, but cannot see what
is on the screen without stepping past the painted line (and entering into
the art itself). At showings no one will step over the line, although
everyone cranes their neck, trying to see the screen without going over
the line.

Everyone except the children. They walk right in, sit down and start
watching the cartoons.
