Pixel Forest is Pipilotti Rist’s latest installation presented at the LUMA Foundation in the South of France, in Arles. Rist is best known for creating experiential video art and installation art that often portray self-portraits and singing. Her work is often described as surreal, intimate, abstract art, having a preoccupation with the female body.

Pixel Forest is presented on the foundation’s site for the first time. Comprised of 3,000 LED lights, the piece immerses the viewer in a room-size interactive experience based on video. Changing colours and gradual effects are used as a source of enlightening radiance that melt tenderly with the surroundings and blurs the lines between object, environment, image, and light. It’s on view at the LUMA Foundation until 4th November.
