Kristina Wong Projects is a performance art collective consisting of internationally renowned performance artist Kristina Wong, playwright and actor Samuel Valdez, and poet and DJ Kuttin Kandi. During their six-month residency, they will be creating The Standby Room, exploring stories of waiting, anticipation, and redemption. This “pop-up” waiting room will be constructed out of sewn fabric and filled with hand-written stories collected from travelers. The group is exploring the airport as a transitional space that bridges past and future, where engagement is fleeting. The Standby Room offers a fun, visually captivating and immersive experience for passengers to tell stories of what is on the other end of their travels.
Visitors are invited to help build the waiting room by joining in the sewing circle or sharing their stories of #WhatAreWeReallyWaitingFor
