NEW YORK (AP) - It's not the kind of performance that will win her another Academy Award, but actress Tilda Swinton certainly has them buzzing at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

But not too loudly - she's trying to sleep.

The "Moonrise Kingdom star has been engaging in a different kind of performance art. She's presenting a one-person piece called "The Maybe," in which she lies sleeping in a glass box for the day.

The first performance was over the weekend. The museum won't say if there's a schedule for when it will come back.

On Monday, the display drew a line of spectators that wound through a whole second-floor gallery into a museum hallway.

Bemused German tourist Erwin Aschenbrenner said it's "just what you'd expect to see at MoMA."
