Good Art #10. Sip My Ocean.

Rotterdam's Museum Boijmans van Beuningen has a fabulous Pipilotti Rist piece installed above a stairway at the moment. It reminded me of her 1996 work Sip My Ocean — I was infatuated with it at the Biennale of Sydney in 2000. As I did with Teaching A Plant The Alphabet, I went back time and time again to watch the hypervideo clip in all its glitchy glory, never tiring of her maniacal cover version of Chris Isaac's beautiful Wicked Game. It's a winning combination, and watching it on You Tube now years later, I'm still rather fond of it. I've already hit repeat once. Twice.
