    The Waiting Room is an interior environment sited outdoors. The room has all the familiar appearances of a waiting area including uncomfortable seating, vinyl-tiled floor and artificial plants. These fake plants have been altered to accentuate their man-made quality - their leaves have been cut into geometric shapes. For the installation entitled Some Bird's Paradise, Benson has placed modified artificial trees in planters along the Park's waterfront. In contrast to the real trees in the Park, they will remain green and lush through the winter as the natural landscape around them changes with the seasons.
