    "Noland considers cult figures as “object”-ified. We pick up People magazine in the supermarket, consume celebrities and then discard them. Patty is a convenient vehicle to make a point: her malleable personality wasprogrammed from the start and assumed many identities during her life, from cheerleader, to revolutionary, to American housewife. Coming from a family that practically invented yellow journalism, Patty ironically became its victim. As “photo-object,” cropped and blown up, she exemplified the media’s manipulation of the rich and famous as soap opera, which has become even more standard journalistic procedure today."  (J. Siegel, “The American Trip: Cady Noland’s Investigations,” Arts Magazine, December 1989, p. 45)
