If you see nothing, say something.
Cynthia is an ungainly sight. She wears hemorrhoid pillow dresses. There’s a constant look of displeasure on her face. Her voice is pained and slightly monotonous. To numb her boredom, she surrounds herself with the stuff of infomercials – new age kitsch and painted sand. She is the alter ego of video and performance artist Shana Moulton, one of ten New York-based artists being profiled in Art21’s “New York Close-Up” Series. The protagonist of Moulton’s long-running Whispering Pines (2002 – ) series, Cynthia is the digital age’s American dreamer.
