The video work ‘Waiting for Los Angeles’ draws a portrait of Los Angeles through the eyes of one of its few truly democratic public spaces, Griffith’s Park. Shot over a two year period and edited down from roughly 300 hours of footage to 1 hour and 12 minutes, the work describes this quintessentially post modern-city that is so resistant to interpretation through a consistent single frame. The users of the park enter the frame like a stage becoming participants in this 20th Century Waiting for Godot where all the little nothings describe a bigger narrative.
