Hayley Eichenbaum is an interdisciplinary artist and director who works between San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA. Her early performative and kinetic work analyzes society’s expectations of women throughout the Western world, in particular how women are supposed to care about and preserve their looks. Her current digital photography work expands on the concept of appearance. Here the focus shifts to buildings and the built landscape, with particular attention to what remains of the American Southwest, where a fine façade becomes crucial to society’s very survival.
