Pipilotti Rist

One of the artists I looked at was Pipilotti Rist. She is a visual artist who works with video, film and moving images. She often displays her work as projections.

Her pieces are presented in a variety of environments, with different materials being used as a medium to receive her projections, but with many of them completely surrounding the viewer.

Oil painting submarine is presented on the walls of a plush reception room, which shows echos of the camera obscura work of Abelardo Morell

Her 2009/2011 work 'Bremer Lungenflügel' and 2014 work "Worry Will Vanish horizon" again features large projections on the walls, that immerse the viewer. Though this time it is in a more neutral environment, in this case a plain room, with the floor festooned with pillows and cushions for the viewers to lie on.

Though her projection surfaces are not limited to flat walls she also uses pieces of hanging fabric singular and in layers to project her work on to. Each one creating a different effect which encompases the viewer into a new world.
