Opening Reception: February 10, 7-10PM
The medical office waiting room is a thinking space. In design and function, this space encourages the anxious mind to wander, imagining the possible and impossible outcomes of the visit. While thought can lead to productive action, this state of mind meanders between the rational and irrational, and traps the thinker in a place of passive redundancy. Time is consumed, but there is no resolved outcome.
