Our life could be simplistically described as permanent waiting. Every one of us is always waiting for something. Some of us are hunters who would not agree with such a theory. We are not only collectors but sophisticated strategists who are trying to make a creative transformation of the long-term future of this world. The waiting room
is a place that none of us ought to have the pleasure of. The process of forcing, waiting for something to occur or happen. It is a place of involuntary residence as if it were a prison. But if there was a space that enriches us thanks to waiting (in a spiritual way), we assume that we would like to enter into it gladly voluntarily and often. The waiting room would become a kind of an intellectual wellness. Stano Masár is inviting us to enter his author’s waiting room. A waiting room where we could have waited for an artistic idea.
