DECSRIPTION: I made this piece in response of certain things in my life that my never happen, waiting on those things and moving on from them. It’s about having that little bit of play while waiting on something, kind of like anticipating your date at a fancy dinner, or even at home. The audience sees the piece in the middle of a room, with a table set up with candles, and a LEGO place mat. As the piece goes on, the figure slowly places LEGO pieces onto the mat one by one. The piece starts out visually simple, but the abstract placement of the LEGOs continues until the figure decides to not wait anymore, blows out the candles, and stops.
