Waiting and wanting, too

 

Created as a collaboration between Melissa Watt, Gabrielle Aufiero and Lourdes Pelaez

 

2010

 

What does it mean to wait?

Can one wait without waiting for something or wanting for something? How does one wait?

 

In an effort to explore these questions, three

females set out to experience waiting as a state of being and as a state of transit. Their location within  a body of water creates the time lapse necessary for an audience to

perceive their  journey.
