It seems that we are always waiting for screens. But what are we really waiting for? Treating the screen as an object of sculptural concern, this paper attempts to understand how inherent event-relationships might escape digital/analogue dualisms of the screen. Drawing on Graham Harman’s constructs of things-in-themselves and Tristan Garcia’s notions of compactness and intensity, the ‘nonsense’ of the indexical image is explored through discussion of the author’s recent sculptural projects that challenge correlational assumptions about presence and the necessity of waiting for it (Harman, 2011; Garcia, 2014).
