The Waiting Room (2011)

Fabricated waiting room (carpet, stanchions, television, lamp, furniture, wall art)
The presence of a waiting area triggered a number of intriguing reactions in passersby and participants. For example, some felt guilt as they assumed they had just cut in line, others felt an urgency to join in the waiting as if they had arrived late, some ignored the line but did not question its presence.
