WAIT TO ENJOY A MOVIE
Wait to Enjoy a Movie is a sculptural space created to investigate the architecture of waiting and amplify the thinking within it.
The project is constructed as two adjacent rooms: a screening room and a waiting room. Movies showing in the screening room are re-edited such that their time-skipping cuts are replaced by real time empty sequences. A typical 90-minute piece of entertainment becomes years and decades long. The program includes six 2015 Academy Award Winning films scheduled in the following order: Birdman(33,165 minutes), Whiplash(525,697 minutes), Big Hero 6(4,4647 minutes), Boyhood(5,898,276 minutes), Ida(120,967 minutes), and Interstellar(30,996,803 minutes). The calculation of their duration is based on varies of evidences: clocks showing in the frame, characters' lines mentioning the time, shots of sun or moon's position in sky, shots of routine actions, etc.
