Pipilotti Rist is among the world's best-known artists working with video. Her multi-screen installations have a dream-like quality as, for example, a beautiful young woman (the artist herself) cavorts in fantastic seascapes or surreal jungles. This monograph explores the artist and her work. It features: a discussion of Rist's work in relation to notions of Utopia; an examination of Rist's innovation in video technology in the creation of a new female image; an exploration of the psychoanalytical implications of one video work, "Absolutions" ("Pipilotti's Mistakes") (1988); "Artist's Choice", for which the artist has selected two selections from the poet Anne Sexton and novelist Richard Brautigan; and "Artist's Writings" - Rist's descriptions of her dreams, highly influential in the realization of her imagery, are set alongside a homage to video pioneer Nam June Paik.
