waiting room, 2022



waiting room
16mm to digital 2022, 3 mins
16mm found footage is manipulated using optical printing, digital layering and reprocessing. The simultaneous banality and stress of waiting undergoes a physical transformation into an active and highly charged materiality informed by our personal projections and desires.This material-based film work speaks to the various states of tension, calm, frustration, apprehension— as well as injustice, inequity and struggle—felt in our respective waiting rooms.
Presented on the VanLive! video screen at Granville and Georgia (Vancouver) throughout the month of May 2 through June 5, 2022. Commissioned for Platforms: We Are Here, Live by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program.
