    Shana Moulton was born in 1976 in Oakhurst, USA. Through videos, installations, and performance, the artist has constructed a unique world combining spirituality and consumerism. Since 2002 she pursues her exploration of her alter ego Cynthia, in the privacy of her domestic space. This otherworldly character creates portals - unexpected connections between various dimensions, places, and moments from her life. The sculpture Reaching through the Cosmic Sphere, takes the form of a hand, in the palm of which are written the names of the different lines used in palmistry. At the top of each finger, objects emblematic of Cynthia’s character are represented; symbols of the conflict playing out inside her between spirituality and consumerism.
