One of the better aspects of working for Inventory, and here I don't mean to brag, is that it enables us to collaborate not only with our friends, but also with people we greatly admire. Being able to combine both, or when one becomes the other, offers the ultimate feeling of fulfillment, and is something I know each of us cherish. Issue 11 of the magazine was no exception, and being able to visit and interview the Los Angeles-based artist Oliver Payne was certainly one of my own personal highlights. Having put up with an afternoon of questions, photographs and arcade game defeats, I was thrilled when Oliver also agreed to produce a short film for the launch of our latest issue.
Inventory Eleven was first shown back in November, as part of an exhibition, and during a night of celebration, at the Paris bookstore 0fr. Today we're proud to finally share Oliver's film online for the very first time, accompanied by a short Q&A with the artist about the concept behind it, and the themes contained within.
