"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
PREVIEW: Paul Pfeiffer in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (2003)
Paul Pfeiffer's groundbreaking work in video, sculpture, and photography uses recent computer technologies to dissect the role that mass media plays in shaping consciousness. Pfeiffer's intimate and idealized video works are often presented on small LCD screens and loop infinitely—meditations on faith, desire, and a contemporary culture obsessed with celebrity.
Paul Pfeiffer is featured in the Season 2 episode "Time" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
