The work is based on the concept of “presence”, namely human existence and the death of time. The sculptures emit a pulsating light that almost appears to breathe as it counts the time between one person stopping and sitting on them, thinking, contemplating and the next. As each person stands up and leaves, the light from the sculptures goes out and the counter starts the countdown again, it will keep on counting until another person comes to sit — then a new round starts.
The title of this work comes from a play by Beckett. The sculptures, like the hero in the play, are waiting for something that does not come. What it is waiting for and when they can meet remain unknown. In the end, everything dies or disappears as the lights of the sculptures will too.
