The artwork brings the river water out of its banks —allowing us to perceive the body of water from both a side view and from below.

Inventory is a ‘dry stream’ in the tradition of Japanese dry rock gardens that utilize curving lines of stones to represent a flowing waterway. Like these ancient gardens, Inventory creates a sense of flow with no water present. In this artwork, the stream is pictured with materials that are neither wet nor natural, but they imply a natural watery world.

"The cascade long ago

ceased to roar,

But we continue to hear

the murmur

of its name."

Poem from the Hyakunin isshu Anthology
