The replicated jetty suggests an illusion of time, and the mutation from ‘waited’ to 'wasted' time. Passengers here have the opportunity to stay and idle their time as long as they please, walking on the wooden jetty, that gradually rises while running along the floor, stretching into the middle of the room. A fan placed at the end of the jetty gently moves the air while an automated voice reenacts and reworks the station’s announcement.
In fact, since both the waiting room and the jetty are deprived of their ‘waiting’ analogy within this new framing, the passenger’s experience morphs from the socially-accepted “waiting” to an act of pure time “wasting”. What are our reactions to the act of “wasting” and do we always have to view this as a negative?
With this ironic assemblage, Mine wants to propose an act of disengagement from the autonomist motion we perform when occupying time, and to readjust our cognitive system; however paradoxical, it is in this last process that we might perhaps experience a subversive act and a form of 'freedom'.
