“In her video Cycle, the artist escorts viewers through a hypnotic, consumer exchange in latex gloves.
“Hello. Welcome. It is nice to meet you. You look nice. You seem nice. Is this your first time?”
Weber narrates in a soft whisper reminiscent of ASMR videos and guided meditation. Slices of ham and sheets of waxed paper veil and partially reveal a series of the artist’s selfies during her lunch breaks, practicing smiling and wearing deli meat masks as an improvised skin care treatment. The spinning blade of a meat slicer reinforces the repetitive nature of everyday life in a consumer-oriented world. In equal parts comforting, monotonous, and sexualized, the video transitions from predictable rhythms of customer service dialogue into confessional monologue about suburban social expectations and anxieties.” _Amanda Smith / Curator Sounds Good
