    A modern art museum in South Korea is trying to decide how to restore one of the world's most famous video art installations.

    It's made up of more than a thousand TV sets.

    But with flat screens now becoming the norm, it's getting hard to find old, boxy models and art museums around the world are looking for solutions to keep old video installations like "The More, the Better" going.
