Waiting

Warten 1 documents the experiment which was executed on the 1st of June 1999 on Vienna’s Westbahnhof trainstation. Occasions to wait were offered by all those trains that have been arriving within 24 hours form the far West. The attention was given, inspite of a ritualized welcoming of the trains, to nothing but the waiting itself. The effects of this waiting were recorded with a steel needle into a copper plate. Every resulting print of those plates (etchings) is resulting from the waiting time dedicated to prefiguring of a single train.
