Waist/Waste Room
"Waist/Waste Room" is a one-hour performance which refers to the physical and psychological aspects of squeezing the body into clothing derived from an image-obsessed culture. Performance artist Angela Ellsworth has created this intelligent commentary on female weight rituals, and provides humorous insight into our society's hypocrisy. Locked in the bathroom stall, with only feet exposed and fragments of flesh on a video screen, Ellsworth eats packets of powdered doughnuts while telling "fat stories". Ellsworth wears a pink cocktail dress with a compartment ruffle at the waist which houses the powdered doughnuts. The compartment is complete with sippers on each side so when more doughnuts are needed, she reaches into her own stomach of flesh which holds the packets of doughnuts. she appears to eat them from her won body. she eats herself., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner.

Water
This exhibition examines through the work of thirty individual artists, both historic and contemporary, a myriad of personal interpretations of this intriguing and basic element of our existence. Many of the images are sublime, still others are confusing or mysterious. All are intriguing and reflect the continual change characteristic of this non-static substance - WATER. The viewer should be challenged by the content of each individual work and how the artist has interpreted, appropriated or utilized water as and illusion, metaphor or subject. Simultaneously each person should be encouraged to reflect on their current appreciation and understanding of the theme of this exhibit. Awareness of this powerful, unique element is essential especially to those of us living in the arid west.
