Mariko Mori is a Japanese video, performance, and photographic artist. Mori creates works where she takes direct control over her own image; becoming an exotic alien creature, a futuristic robot girl, an ancient goddess, or a Shamanistic cyborg. The critique of consumerism and the juxtaposition of Eastern mythology and Western culture are recurring themes within Mori's work.
