Whispering Pines 10, Chapter 1
Shana Moulton’s alter ego Cynthia has been searching for the meaning of life and fulfilment in her video series Whispering Pines for almost twenty years. She is assisted by interactive home décor, self-help instructions, participatory videos and cosmetic rituals. In the very first chapter, she finds spiritual liberation on her yoga mat through a blissful union with Mother Earth.
Shana Moulton, born in 1976, works in video, performance, and installation. She holds a BA from UC Berkeley in art and anthropology and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Since 2007, her work has been shown internationally in group exhibitions and solo shows, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It recalls the video aesthetics of the late 1970s and 80s and thematically interweaves consumerism with commercialised spirituality.
