  • Pipilotti Rist

    Pipilotti Rist (the nickname for Elisabeth Charlotte Rist) was born on June 21, 1962 in Switzerland. She attended the Institiute of Applied Arts and the School of Design. She is an experimental video artist whose work addresses gender and the human body. Her films are very short. She resides in Zurich and Los Angeles.

    Rist seems a little sexist in my opinion. All of the videos I watched did not have men in them. I was very entertained by the one with the woman smashing her face against the glass. She had heavy makeup on thus causing a smear on the window. I am very interested in the thought process behind her work.
