Technique and condition

The installation comprises eight to twelve people positioned in a line varying in shape, length and duration.

The artist has instructed that the volunteers/professional actors are dressed in context with their immediate environment and may handle relevant personal items such as mobile phones, portable music players and newspapers. “They have to look as natural as possible, and act as if they are really queuing somewhere, waiting for something to happen. They are not allowed to divulge any information about the performance, so they need to have been briefed/instructed on that beforehand” (artist questionnaire received November 24, 2004).

The work can be displayed in variable locations that make it possible to queue
