Mariko Mori’s diverse work, which has included video and photography, works on paper, sound, sculpture, and large-scale installations, explores the intersection between art and science, antiquity and modernity, and East and West. In her early work Mori explored urban cyberculture and kitsch, and used herself as a model in quirky photographs of fantastical Manga-inspired environments. More recently she created WAVE UFO (2003), her acclaimed capsule-shaped structure resembling a spaceship that exhibited at the 2005 Venice Biennale; visitors can enter attached to electrodes that gather brainwave data and turn it into real-time visualizations viewable on screens within the space. Mori has also examined Jomon and Celtic traditions and belief systems, fusing ancient symbols and rituals with advanced digital technologies in works such as Transcircle 1.1 (2004), a version of Stonehenge composed of glowing lights. Juxtaposing divergent cultures and disciplines such as Buddhism and science, or traditional tea ceremonies and Manga, Mori creates an aesthetic vocabulary that points simultaneously forward and backward.
