Waiting Windows for Nacka Kommun

Waiting Windows is a large-scale architectural art installation based on the act of waiting: a sculptural study of the ‘dead time’ between the anticipation and the event. The outdoor spatial art piece of variously sized stainless steel structures is set on a wooded hillside close to the new Nacka station.
Designed to reference waiting in the immediate sense of the word – such as waiting for a train at the station – it also represents the period of waiting during the construction of the Nacka station, a direct link for many residents to the centre of Stockholm. The installation is temporary, as is the image shown in the reflection, constantly changing in real-time to mirror the new city centre of Nacka growing into place.
