There's the dock, the bench and the fish bench. But the most pleasant bench is the public bench. Accessible to all, it offers a supposedly charming view that we all share. Only one person won't see the same thing as the other. So I chose a bench and tied two envelopes to it. The first envelope contains blank pieces of paper measuring nine by six centimetres and a grey pencil. On it is written: "Take a piece of paper and answer the following question: 'What do you see? Then put your answer in the other envelope. The second envelope is empty and unmarked. État des lieux transcribes the results of this extraordinary experiment.

Waiting is inevitable in daily life, whether it's in store queues or public transportation. This waiting time can significantly influence our perception of time. By becoming aware of the time we spend waiting, which accumulates to 5.5 years over a lifetime, we can better understand its value.
Comparing this waiting time to the duration required to build famous architectural monuments, we realize how precious it is. This analysis highlights the importance of managing our waiting time productively, using it for meaningful activities, personal reflection, or productivity.
In summary, becoming aware of the impact of waiting in our lives encourages us to use these moments more intentionally.
Time is an elusive element dictated by architectural elements or objects, but this reissue of The hours takes us to a more fundamental and biological vision.
