Paul Pfeiffer

Paul Pfeiffer was born in 1966 in the wonderful state of Hawaii. He is an artist that works mostly with videos instead of traditional art means. A large amount of his work includes taking videos that are not his and putting new spins. For example, in one of his works he finds a video tape of a boxing match and he edits out the boxer so you can only see the crowd.

I found Paul to be an interesting artist. However, I was not very drawn to his work or his style in the videos I did find. I found his work to be dry in comparison to the works of Bill Viola and other artists we have looked at this year. This being said, he did have a few pieces of work that I really enjoyed despite my original disinterest. For example: “The Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse” was very visually appealing. In conclusion, although I was not a huge fan, Paul obviously has talent when it comes to digital fine arts, especially in reference to video editing.
