Lawrence Argent :: Waiting


1998 (10" x 10" x 10")


A Video projection Installation. In a dimly lit room a lawn chair is placed on a platform. Suspended above is a bucket that has all its holes plugged with corks. The bucket is suspended from a garden implement which is attached to an old ladder. Images of a many different people, male /female/old/young/some clothed some nude are projected onto the seat of the chair. The section of the chair where the image is projected is painted white and fits tightly the shape of the projected image. These are in real time and each lasts about fifteen seconds. This lasts for one hour and then is looped back to begin again in a variety of clothing and the seat of the chair. The projector is hidden in the bucket.
