“Waiting Land” is an occasion to look at landscape in the ‘real’ world. “Waiting Land” is a stub. It’s an environment that stands in for some other functionality or place. A stub can simulate both behavior and form. It can follow a procedure. It can temporarily substitute something yet to happen. This stub is a testing ground: for the next natural onslaught, the next carcass to rise from oblivion, the inevitable amnesty, the transformation of concrete to gold—basic alchemy. Started in 2001, “Waiting Land” is an ongoing series of collages, drawings, photographs, scaled replica, multiples, moving images, and a story board as comments on an environment we live in.
