Throughout her career Rist's work has been characterized by a unique mixture of rigor and exuberance. It has ranged widely across different media, though her most accomplished pieces are her large-scale video installations. Her work has the ability to engage and enamor the viewer. The color, the movement of the camera and the scale of her works are the vehicles for the creation of a dream space where she explores love, eroticism, the body, the senses, nature, and psychological and physical space. While often playful and entertaining, the work is simultaneously very personal, poetic and sociopolitical.
