Past Artist In Residence
Cindy Lee is a media artist from Melbourne, Australia, and her work consists of both live video footage and video installation. While in her residency at 18th Street, she interviewed Americans, and used family footage as well as domestic footage from her own life to create juxtaposition between the cinematic narratives of film with the personal narratives we make. In her videos she often looks at and analyzes the way people perform in their lives. Her work also places her family footage, which would normally not appeal to the ordinary viewer, and places it into an interesting context that then becomes intriguing to the viewer. Lee is also a VJ (video-jockey) and enjoys using more abstract 2-D and 3-D forms in her work.
