Pipliotti Rist, Sip My Ocean @ The MCA

Here are some of my favourite works from the Pipliotti Rist exhibition, Sip My Ocean, currently on display at the MCA.  Walking into the first room, you hear an eerie lo-fi rendition of Chris Isaak's Wicked Game on a loop as a mirrored split screen displays a women dancing underwater.  Among the other highlights was a room full of hanging crystal LED lights (Pixelwald Motherboard or Pixel Forest Mutterplatte) and a fully furnished living room with multiple video projections across the walls and furniture.  Truly engaging and immersive work.  Go check it out at The MCA!

Annie Everingham

This is my first blog post and I thought I'd start with an artist I've been following lately: Annie Everingham

I love Annie's work.  My girlfriend and I have a few of her prints in our room.  The way she plays with colour and light is really unique.  The abstract nature of her work always brings me back, seeing new things each time.  Much of her work reminds me of arial view landscapes and the collision of land and sea.
