Pillow Girl was originally a sound-art work created for an invitational at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, featuring audio created by converting images (the covers of pulp magazines) into electronic soundscapes. The visual portion of the piece makes use of the covers themselves, with the illustrated figures coming to life and morphing into one another during the course of the presentation (each cover is visible in its original state for only 1/30th of a second). Over 200 covers are presented in this fashion. In addition to being a colorful and impressive visual display, the images presented in Pillow Girl are a vivid and fascinating historical encapsulation of how women have been depicted in popular culture.
