The theme of the project is the waiting times in the city’s public spaces. The times during which our body stands still in a public place. The works do not refer to waiting times that involve personal expectations, but to the needs of people on a massive scale, existing in an urban environment i.e. waiting at stations and stops of public transport, counters, civil public services, etc.

The aim is to depict the waiting, in which no work is produced, no memorable events occur and usually nothing else is recorded in our perception, but the limitations set by the waiting.

The result is an archive of photos, drawings and videos with transcripted dialogues, resulting from a three – year search of these sites.
