Hanging Art High - Thoughts?

Hang 'em high - it's not just a bad-ass Clint Eastwood movie, it's also the apparent philosophy behind the artwork placement in this room. We're all for breaking decorating rules, but this still feels a bit taboo, no? What are your thoughts?

First instinct says that no one can really appreciate the art way up there without getting a sore neck. However, maybe in this case the actual art isn't the point, but rather that the placement of repeating frames work as almost an architectural element, drawing the eyes up and making the walls feel taller. What say you?
