Public Delivery speaks w/ Mariko Mori: Art can unite humanity

Mariko Mori spoke with us about her work Ālaya, 2013.

About Mariko Mori

Mariko Mori’s practice explores universal questions at the intersection of life, death, reality and technology. The juxtaposition of Eastern mythology with Western culture is a common theme in Mori’s works, shown through layering photography and digital imaging, such as in her 1995 installation Birth of a Star. Later works, such as Nirvana show her as a goddess, transcending her early roles via technology and image, and abandoning realistic urban scenes for more alien landscapes. Worldwide, Mori gained recognition for her interactive installation, Wave UFO, which debuted at Kunsthaus Bregenz, in Bregenz (Austria) in 2003. The installation was subsequently shown in New York (USA) with Public Art Fund, Genoa (Italy), and was included in the 2005 Venice Biennale (Italy).
