Please Wait is an exhibition curated and designed by Studio 3, held at Grafill R21 (Oslo, Norway) April-May 2012.
An average person spends 62 minutes every day waiting. That's 15 days a year!
Waiting for a green light. Waiting for public transport. Waiting for customer service. Waiting for a waiter.
Altogether, waiting is something that we do quite a lot. From the cradle to the grave.
Waiting to appear. Waiting to walk. Waiting to talk. Waiting for Santa. Waiting to grow up. Waiting for the one and only. Waiting to give birth. Waiting for first steps. Waiting for first words. Waiting for retirement. Waiting for bad news. Waiting for a miracle. Waiting for the end.
We found the subject of waiting to be both intriguing and inspiring, so we decided to curate a multidisciplinary exhibition – A tribute to waiting. What it normally is associated by, what it can be used for and what one can actually do while waiting. We wanted to inspire people to turn every single wait, into an opportunity to create.
