Last weekend I ventured to the MOMA on a crowded Saturday. I headed up the stairs to check out the recent Miró & Van Gogh exhibits, but before I could get there I was stopped in awe at their 2nd floor atrium. A new video installation was being worked on and it was intense. I’ve just recently started on my own personal venture with projections, and seeing this was like a gigantic leap from my soul. I know that this is a big part of what I’m meant to do.
The exhibit opens today and it’s called Pour Your Body Out. Swiss artist, Pipilotti Rist, created an all encompassing video projection that takes up the entire 2nd floor and swarms around you with vibrant color and light. On Monday night I went to hear her speak at the MOMA theater. Her demeanor is bright, quirky, thoughtful and quite bjorkian. A woman after my own heart. I’m greatly inspired to see the installation as a whole, and to keep such things in mind as I go forward with my own attempts.
