Wait/Hate (for Nauman)
|The vehicle of the machine acts as an extension
of the individual, creating a dialog between expectation, potential, and
action. Wait/Hate (for Nauman) pounds out a repetitive gesture of waiting,
drumming of fingers, with each
engagement of the hand-operated crank, questioning the expectation by both viewer and sculpture as well as the quality of the reproduction of the experience. Aside from the blurry text "HATE" produced, a literal drawing in space and time is made by the paper, which builds up on the floor, documenting the action.
