Commissioned especially for the atrium space (and titled for the 7354 cubic metres that make up its volume), the work consisted of a sequence of 25-foot-high moving images, which visitors could experience while walking through the space, or sprawled on bespoke seating in the centre of the room. Pour Your Body Out was a directive, a wish, addressed to the body of each viewer; the artist hoped the largesse of the space would encourage bold movement and expansion in both mind and body. The projections of body parts increase in size until the   viewer becomes a miniscule particle in Rist’s world.>.
