The Genealogy of the Supermarket
Framed photographs and wood on wallpapered wall, 144 x 360 inches, 2005-ongoing

The Genealogy of the Supermarket interrelates people who appear on common products in the grocery store and organizes them so that they appear to be members of one large family. Playing on the fantasies of lineage and heritage that these products themselves already provoke ("My Italian grandmother made pasta this pasta sauce for me"), the images have been returned to their metaphorical point of origin.
