"West St. Paul" and Other Songs

"Inventory Days"

The "Inventory Days" videos are based on a journal I kept in the winter of 1997. At that time I was 25 years old and living with my parents for a couple months; I was in a holding pattern between opportunities. I took a temp job doing inventory in supermarkets and stores around New England and I painted and drew in my journal on a card table set up in my old bedroom.  Back then I made books because I didn't have the resources to make and share videos. "Inventory Days" is my way of satisfying an earlier desire. These videos, along with props and sculptures, were shown at the Minneapolis Institute of Art's MAEP Gallery in 2015.
