Pipilotti Rist’s Video Installation Encourages Relaxation

Artist Pipilotti Rist’s video installation Worry Will Vanish Horizon features close-up images of the human body projected inside a space where viewers are encouraged to lounge on comfortably bean bag chairs.

As The Creators Project explains, “Juxtaposing computer-generated flesh with organic structures, the piece explored both internal and external worlds, uniting them all with a soundscape by musician Anders Guggisberg. Inspired by Autogenic Training, a method of facilitated relaxation by way of prone postures and repeated visualizations, Rist wanted viewers to leave the exhibition in a mental state where they would be ‘receptive to new ideas.'”
