Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist has transformed the use of video and multimedia in art. Her latest exhibition at the New Museum is a powerful and immersive journey of cinematic installations. Each work thoughtfully leverages the use of sound, light and visualizations in space. As an observer you can begin to trace Pipilotti’s relationship to technology over time. The entire experience is kaleidoscopic – colors drift, lights fluctuate and projections move across space. Every movement is activated further by collective, almost dreamlike spatial gestures.
The work creates an unexpected level of intimacy with its observers. On the second floor you will find a corridor occupied by individually sized head-booths. Compelled by geometry you will be provoked to step into a new world of light and sound.
Pipilotti Rist masterfully moves each individual from single-channel videos to transformative and communal architectural spaces. Her soundscapes thoughtfully elevate the experience of each piece. Pixel Forest is destined to bring each observer to new physical and psychological horizons.
