| A panoramic view of the artist’s oeuvre from 1998 to the present

The video and sound installations, sculptures, and photographs by Paul Pfeiffer (*1966 in Honolulu) deal with the phenomenon of the “afterglow” of mass-media images that are rooted in the collective memory of a globalized media society. In works like The Long Count or 24 Landscapes, he digitally manipulates found images—in this case of celebrities such as Mohammed Ali or Marilyn Monroe—cropping, retouching, duplicating, and layering them. The visual material appears in new dimensions, triggering a stream of thought in the viewer while melding works of art with personal memory. In this way, one can experience the role and functions of images in pop culture in relation to the (re)construction of history on both a social as well as an individual level. This publication extends to the artist’s oeuvre the recognition it deserves.
