[Tutor] mac os x executable

Yes, this makes sense to me.. but when treating a project as an artwork I
can't ask people to go through an effort beyond a simple start of the app.
For instance, I'm in Boston and the work is being show on a computer in
gallery in SF-- if it crashes, curators often will be unenthusiastic when
being told over the phone how to re-launch the artwork-- it would be much
easier to say, 'just double click the icon labeled artwork'. Same goes for
an artwork I would like to distribute online to 'non-tech' viewers...

Does this make sense?
