Editor’s Note (excerpt)                                                                                                                             …It is not popular to make claims about the function of art, but if art serves any function it is to collapse the difference between waiting and living. To make waiting a form of experience, as valuable as any other. This is true for more than just innumerable novels that are devoured in hospital waiting rooms the world over. It is only in the midst of a good book or film, viewing a stellar painting or play, that we start to live while waiting. It is fashionable to think of art as something more than merely waiting, merely murdering the time in between more active pursuits, but of course the consumption of art is not a form of labour…
