Whispering Pines 6, 7, 8
The Wexner Center's exhibition space for video, The Box features varied works shown in an intimate setting. The Box is located just across from the Wexner Center Store. Screenings run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Alice in Wonderland meets Pee Wee's Playhouse in these three installments of Whispering Pines, a series of videos that follows the bizarre adventures of Cynthia, played by an admitted alter-ego of Shana Moulton.
Over the episodes, Cynthia dabbles in New Age healing, deep cleanses her pores, ikebana (the Japanese art of flower arranging), and imbibes a potent but sugar-free dose of Crystal Light. The works culminate in the discovery of the path to a parallel universe in the ceiling of her candy-colored living room. Moulton's lo-fi video effects and strangely earnest pop culture references add to the surreal experience. (18 mins., video courtesy of Electronic Arts Intermix, New York)
