Inventory
Single-channel video. 2006


    

A Humanimal sedately moves around a domestic environment occupied only by cats. As it goes inside cupboards that lead to other rooms and scans the items housed within the walls, occasional reflections of it and its strange accomplice (a sort of ventriloquist's doll?) are caught in mirrors and windows.

This video questions the relationship the viewer has with the people in front of and behind the camera and the role of the camera itself in film. Its uncomfortable pace and voyeuristic undertones give it a "pre-climax horror movie" effect and the sounds of scraping and shuffling and doors constantly opening and closing add to the disorientating space that the viewer experiences.
