The first installment in the multi-part Whispering Pines series, this unsettling video introduces Cynthia, the series’ silent, somewhat confused protagonist, who is played by Moulton. In these wryly humorous narratives, Cynthia’s interactions with her everyday world mix the mundane and the surreal. A portrait of anxiety set in a generic supermarket, Whispering Pines 1 foregrounds the artist’s ongoing concerns with the ways in which people are at once estranged from and invested in consumer goods.
