For Faberllul Residency I present an artistic project about the concept of ‘Waiting’. A research on the concept of Waiting and the development of an artistic object influenced by this research.

This project started based on a personal experience, the 15 days I waited for the results of a biopsy. My proposal is to understand 'waiting' as a fundamental human activity. I will question if we drastically reduce the 'waiting' time, something deeply human will be lost. From this research, a scenic text will be created.
