Sara Cwynar was featured on KQED Arts for her participation in the exhibition ‘Culture Industry’ at Oakland’s Slide Space 123, Mills College.
Sara Cwynar’s Little Video skewers the advertising industry and image manipulation as they infiltrate and influence our psyches. Working with found images and items drawn from her personal archive, objects including ads and postcards flash across the antiquated PVM monitor. Those same images appear again, this time with a measuring tape stretched across them, referencing how images are sized to fit the printed or electronic page and how consumers — primarily women, but not exclusively — struggle to fit ourselves into a fantastical world defined by hairless skin and zero body odor.
