Pipilotti Rist - Pixel Forest

Pixel Forest by Pipilotti Rist is one of the most recent works by the Zurich-based artist, presented here for the first time in France. The installation comprised of 3,000 LED lights, resembles a movie screen that has exploded into the space, immersing the viewer in a room-size 3-dimensional video.

When walking into this forest of lights, the walls around seem to disappear. Video is used as a source of enlightening radiance that melts tenderly with the surroundings and blurs the lines between object, environment, image, and light.
