The fourth in the Catalogue series. Catalogue is a suite of 16mm black-and-white films and videos that consider the time it takes to look at desirable objects presented in a catalogue of knock-off home furnishings photographed in staged rooms imitating the style of film noir. Each film takes one volume of the 11-volume mail order catalogue as its subject.
Catalogue Vol. 4 takes the "Lighting" catalogue as its subject and uses a pulse of electronic sound and light to represent each fixture, shot in the order that they were found in the original catalogue. The intervals of black were derived by a matter of taste: items that the filmmaker found less appealing were excised from the sequence. (Reedited 2016).
