My grandmother describes from memory the upstairs of her house and the minutiae of her familiar surroundings, while the camera films the current reality of this space. As she was no longer able to access the upstairs of her house due to her physical condition, she lived in her memory of the rooms how they looked 10 years ago.
Inventory stages an encounter between the past and present of a place. The no longer visible yet still present reality and the current moment question each other and in this way make their interdependent relationship visible.

Inventory won the Sproxton Memorial Prize for best work (London College of Communication).
