Mariko Mori, Tida Dome, installation, 2011
Journey to Seven Light Bay, a new, much anticipated exhibition by Mariko Mori opened Dec 6. at Adobe Museum of Digital Media. This digital project transports AMDM visitors to the tranquil Miyako Island in Okinawa, Japan, where Mori has installed the first part of her monumental earth work, Primal Rhythm, consisting of a sun pillar and a moonstone which are moved by the sun and ocean tide. Mori's artistic philosophy encourages greater awareness of the natural world. According to Mori, this work is designed to unite the celestial and the terrestrial. It will be a lasting testimony that pays respect to the natural beauty of our surroundings on earth. The real time installation of Primal Rhythm will open in Okinawa on the winter solstice, December 22, upon completion of Sun Pillar.
