Synopsis: This beautifully designed book presents Mariko Mori's Dream Temple project, a full-scale temple inspired by an eighth century Buddhist temple in Japan. Beginning with her pencil, ink, and watercolor drawings, and continuing with architectural drawings, digital images, and video stills, Mori's vision of a contemporary meditative space is a mesmerizing journey into the micro and macrocosmic forces of creation. The finished temple, built out of dichroic glass, an ever-changing, iridescent surface, serves as a metaphor for both the body and consciousness. The book itself is exquisitely produced, incorporating transparent vellum and fine papers to present her drawings, notes, calligraphy, and storyboard plans for how different components of the temple would come together.
About the Author: Mariko Mori was born in Tokyo in 1967. Mori, who divides her time between Tokyo and New York, is a former model whose training in fashion studies rigorously informs her investigations of the impact of media on the cultural construction of identity. Her panoramic photographs and video installations present fantastic tableaux that conflate past, present, and future and feature the artist in the roles of cyborgs or otherworldly spirits. She has had solo exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and the Brooklyn Museum of Art among others.
