An Inventory
2017-present

An Inventory (6151 Richmond Street) is an in-progress catalog of the vases that appear throughout the main set of the American sitcom The Golden Girls. These set items are present to be understood but overlooked: even when broken, their unscathed form may reappear in subsequent episodes. An Inventory extracts traces of faded video to bring these half-visible objects to the foreground, and to consider how ceramics – and artworks more broadly – are employed in mass media as signifiers of class and taste.
