Salad Days by Tara Sinn

Tara Sinn is a NY based graphic designer and artist. She creates websites, music videos and motion graphics for the internet. I’ve been a longtime fan of her numerous multimedia projects, which are always smart, fun and inspirational.

From January 10 – February 8, 2012, Family Bookshop in LA will be exhibiting Salad Days, a new show by Tara Sinn. Consisting of video, prints and sculptural works, Salad Days is an expression referring to a youthful time, accompanied by the enthusiasm, idealism, and innocence that one associates with a young person. The expression also refers to the time in a person’s life when he or she is at the peak of their abilities.

With aging comes the realization that the salad days of youth have passed. In ancient Greek culture, old age started at 30. The works in this show deal with youth, corporeal mortality, and the passage of time. They reference ancient Greek thought regarding symmetry and the ideal physique, health, exercise and youthful vigor, and the role of the fate in determining the course of one’s life.
