A la belle étoile (Under the Sky) is Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist’s giant psychedelic video projection of landscapes and people opening their mouths wide enough for the camera to jump down their throats—footage that spreads across the floor under your feet and climbs across your body as you move. You can experience the disorienting effects from floor level, that is, or you can climb the stairs and watch the movie, and the disoriented visitors below, from the balcony above. Ephemeral image meets flesh, and tries to mate.
