Artist Research: Bill Viola
Bill Viola, Tristan's Ascension, 2014
Bill Viola's creates a lot of immersive installation art through the use of videos and sound that focus a lot on themes like birth, life, death, grief, and love. There are a few articles that have referred to him as being a pioneer for video art. I really like his piece Tristan's Ascension, I find the piece to be so visually striking. I also find it so interesting how even though the water is moving in reverse the physical person does not and it confuses me about how this piece was created.
