The Waiting Room
The Waiting Room is what it says on the window. Made as my solo show at the end of my residency at The Number Shop Gallery & Studios, November 2017.
This video was made by Alessandro Di Massimo and documents some of the goings-on of The Waiting Room and my role as Receptionist.
Various pamphlets from the 'Pamphlets to Help You' initiative (see 'Pamphlets to Help You' page) were on the tables for people to read whilst they waited, and I created a fictional radio station called Contemplation Station which played on an infinite loop throughout each day.
I spent the 9 days sitting at the desk as the Receptionist. Whenever someone came in to ask about what The Waiting Room was for, the phone unfortunately rang, so I had to speak for long periods of time to my colleagues, and was otherwise very busy with reception work at my computer.
Thank you to everyone who helped with this project; particularly The Number Shop Studios & Gallery for the award, space, funding and support.
