A World Like No Other: Pipilotti Rist

Pipilotti Rist is an interesting artist. Her works go from videos and sound work to immersive displays. The ideas represented in each piece is thought provoking and difficult to decipher, but its charms lie within that.

Rist’s displays are ones that I would love to visit. They look so surreal and calming, like you could lose yourself in them for hours. Pixel Forest is one such display, spanning several rooms and creating a fantastical world. Her videos and soundtracks are a little more unsettling but no less mesmerizing. Every piece I came across required a lot of sifting through before I could move on to the next thing. Still, Rist’s works are something I wouldn’t mind spending hours wandering through.
