Contemporary glance at the surreal: videoworks of Shana Moulton

Shana Moulton
Feeling Free with 3D Magic Eye Remix

2004, 8:05 min. (video, color, sound)

Appropriating a dated exercise video hosted by actress Angela Lansbury, Feeling Free presents a woman, played by Moulton, who attempts to follow the televised workout in her living room even as elements of her home décor begin to appear onscreen. Deriving its title from an inspirational segment of Lansbury's program, Feeling Free subjects the appropriated footage to eccentric visual and audio displacements, culminating in a psychedelic dance sequence set to a remix of the program's insipid theme song. The piece was first shown in the context of Moulton's multimedia performance Decorations of the
Mind.

Whispering Pines #3
2004, 7:33 min. (video, color, sound)

Whispering Pines 3 continues Moulton's evocatively oblique video series. Seated in an easy chair, wearing a multi-colored neck brace and surrounded by odd home decorations, Moulton's protagonist Cynthia makes notes in her diary, allowing us a glimpse into an inner life that seems to oscillate between concerns with animals and mass-market objets d'art. Her rumination on a recently acquired wall hanging - "I really like its texture but I can't understand what it is trying to say" - could serve to illustrate the uncanny psychic spaces that Moulton depicts in these works.
