"Catalogue" is a silent 16mm film that consider the time it takes to look at desirable objects, in this case, the objects for sale in a mainstream furniture catalogue of designer knock-offs. The catalogue presents de-saturated photographs of staged rooms shot and printed to resemble sets for film-noir era movies. This mediation hypothetically increases the objects' desirability by picturing them in a nostalgic historical moment that is, in fact, fictional. In these pictures, copies of designer furniture are indistinguishable from original pieces. The film is a documentary of the filmmaker’s looking; each cut was determined by the rise and decay of her interest in the object.
