For the past few years, daily life has been marked by waiting. Alone together, we’ve languished in a collectively held breath, waiting for the world to restart. We’ve waited at home, we’ve waited in lines, we’ve waited for a cure. Even after the cure arrived, we sat around in holding pens waiting 15 minutes more just to make sure that the thing that was supposed to save us didn’t accidentally kill us instead.
Through a series of vignettes that translate the feeling of time stalled, While You Wait explores what we do during the in-between moments while waiting for whatever comes next.
