In her first artist talk in New York City, acclaimed multimedia artist Shana Moulton spoke about her approach to video and her focus on character-driven performance and narrative. Brought to life most frequently in her ongoing and ambitious project Whispering Pines, Moulton's work encompasses a series of episodic single-channel video works, immersive video installations, and live performances incorporating interactive video backdrops. During her presentation, Moulton led the audience through the development of her project and her characters. She screened the newest videos from the Whispering Pines series, including Whispering Pines 9 (2009, 10:03 min) and The Sentimental Futurist (2009, 4:51 min), as well as documentation of recent performance and rarely-seen experiments. A Q&A session with the artist followed.
