    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.

  3. Whispering Pines 10 is an opera written by Shana Moulton and Nick Hallett, performed in a multimedia environment of 3-channel video incorporating interactive "live animation" techniques, hacked objects, and original electronic music. In what is essentially an extended, live episode of Shana Moulton's eponymous video serial, the narrative of Whispering Pines 10 focuses on the daily routine of a reclusive hypochondriac named Cynthia, Moulton's alter ego and sole protagonist of the work. Cynthia's reality is a sequence of private moments in which she seeks health and total happiness within her virtual home–represented by a "set" of multiple, interactive video projections–but ultimately settles for fad cures and new age kitsch, creating situations in turn comic, contemplative, and surreal. The mundane objects in Cynthia's possession act as portals into her own overactive subconscious, wherein hallucinatory sequences explore the nature of material and spiritual concerns in contemporary culture.
