      This video was featured in "Acting Out," the group exhibition guest-curated by Erin Riley-Lopez at the Bronx River Art Center from December 3, 2010 - January 8, 2011. The artists deliberately perform—in front of a camera, before an audience, or both— acting out their narratives and characters. Costuming, location, and props, among other elements, play an especially important role in these videos, as they provide the foundation for the entire scenario that is performed by the artists. Regardless of their strategies—which range from quiet interior reflection without monologue or dialogue, to more assertive questioning and discussion—they all share a keen interest in tackling normative societal structures, traditional hierarchical roles, and what it means to be a woman.

          What is your tree? In this film, artist Shana Moulton and composer Nick Hallett collaborate on the opera "Whispering Pines 10"—rehearsing and performing this one-act production at the New Museum of Contemporary Art as part of the Rhizome "New Silent" series. The opera, directed by Elyse Singer, features additional performances from the soprano Daisy Press, voicing the subconscious thoughts of Moulton’s alter-ego Cynthia, and the vocalist Katie Eastburn who plays an environmental activist modeled after Julia “Butterfly” Hill, who famously lived for over two years in a 1,000-year-old California Redwood tree in order to protect it from being cut down. A new take on the operatic form of the monodrama or “mad scene,” the agoraphobic and hypochondriacal Cynthia struggles with her domestic interior—filled with kitschy New Age objects—turning to nature to discover that her life is boundless and full of magic. Drawing on the artist’s own biography for narrative inspiration, Moulton says “I’m presenting my own struggle, my own paranoia or neurosis...this personal, fallible point of view.” Staged in a multimedia virtual environment that compliments the dream-logic of the opera’s narrative, Moulton’s video imagery and wordless movements are synchronized with Hallett’s original score and libretto in a form of dynamic live animation. Originating at The Kitchen in 2010, "Whispering Pines 10" has toured to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, and The Andy Warhol Museum, among other venues. It is currently being developed as an Internet serial drama with support from Creative Capital. Shana Moulton (b. 1976, Oakhurst, California, USA) lives and works in Ridgewood, Queens.

            Should an artist separate herself from the character she creates? In this film, artist Shana Moulton traces the development of her ongoing video and performance series "Whispering Pines" and its central protagonist Cynthia. Shana charts the various ways in which fiction and autobiography meld and diverge in the character of Cynthia, played by the artist herself. The title of the series is an homage to David Lynch’s "Twin Peaks" and adopts the name of Shana’s childhood home: a trailer park for seniors near Yosemite, California. Featuring video and music from several episodes of "Whispering Pines"—a mix of live action, computer animation, and original songs by Jacob Ciocci and Nick Hallett. Shana Moulton (b. 1976, Oakhurst, California, USA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. CREDITS | "New York Close Up" Created & Produced by: Wesley Miller & Nick Ravich. Editor: Mary Ann Toman.

                OBJECT is part of the interactive documentary I co-directed and produced as part of the No one lives here exhibition at RCA. The participating artists and works of art in the exhibition No one lives here, curated by CCA students at RCA, are the focus of this section. Including interviews with artists such as S Mark Gubb, David Raymond Conroy and Shana Moulton, OBJECT reveals the tensions between the material, physical object and the ephemeral, intangible production and consumption of visual material in the digital age. http://www.nooneliveshere.rca.ac.uk/

                  Is being a performance artist just another job? In this film, artist Shana Moulton rehearses and performs "Whispering Pines 7" in the exhibition "Acting Out" at the Bronx River Art Center. In her 14th floor studio at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace, an artist residency program of repurposed offices located in the heart of Wall Street, Moulton gathers up the essential tools of her trade — costume, wig, makeup, DVD — and takes the long uptown subway trip to the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. Her first look at the venue, Moulton uses her limited rehearsal time to scale the video projection and adapt her movements to the confines of the space. The performance showcases, in a condensed and portable form, hallmarks of Moulton’s recent work: playfully interacting with fantastical digital animations, unexpected changes in emotional tone, and performing in character as Cynthia — the central protagonist of the ongoing "Whispering Pines" series. Reflecting on the evening's performance, Moulton considers her aesthetic ambitions, audience expectations, and the pragmatics of being an artist in New York. Shana Moulton (b. 1976, Oakhurst, California, USA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. CREDITS | “New York Close Up” Created & Produced by: Wesley Miller & Nick Ravich. Editor: Mary Ann Toman.
