Tracy and the plastics is a low-fi art punk band consisting of members Tracy, Nikki, and Cola. All three are alter egos of lesbian/feminist video artist Wynne Greenwood: when the band performs live, Greenwood assumes the role of bandleader Tracy, while Nikki and Cola are present only as video projections. The audience is treated not only to music, which Tracy produces on drum machines and an array of keyboards, but the interaction between Tracy and her videotaped counterparts. Tracy and the Plastics has toured all around the world. Greenwood was recently shown at the 2004 Whitney Biennial
and Harvard University. She has also performed at the Andy Warhol Museum and Seattle’s own Consolidate Works along with The King Cobra.“Unlike more traditional video artists, Greenwood is never relegated to being a passive viewer, but rather she becomes a physical participant in her own creation: from her direct conversing with the Plastics, to her silhouette casting a shadow on the screen. The effect is a string of interactions entirely unique to the medium.
