Shapes: A video installation

Screens of various shapes and sizes tell a story of two strangers who meet at the beloved neighborhood landmark, The Wishing Bench.
One is a longtime East Lawrence resident, the other an out of towner in a crisis who mistakes the bench for a bus stop.

The bus never comes but their conversation takes them on a journey they'll never forget...

Or will they?
