Mariko Mori

°1967, Tokyo (JP) – lives and works in London (UK), New York (US), and Tokyo (JP)

Multimedia artist Mariko Mori first became known for her large, brightly colored, manga-style self-portraits as various cyber creatures. Later she experimented with sculptures, interactive installations, and utopian architecture, such as her 1.5 million dollar Wave UFO, for which she hired scientists and technicians with the intention of going to the outer limits of what can be done with technology today. Besides her fascination with the latest technology, the content of her art continues to explicitly refer to mystical themes and the religious foundations of Buddhism and Shinto – about which she says: “The concept of oneness . . . is an unanswered question I carry (with me) through the journey of making work.”
