Mariko Mori (born Tokyo 1967 )

Mori was born in Tokyo in 1967, studied fashion design in Japan, and worked as a fashion model during the late 1980s. She attended art schools in London and New York, and her work reflects the combination of influences from Eastern and Western cultures.
Mori's work thus draws together new technologies and futuristic icons from the mediascape of the present and the spirituality and tradition of the past.

The four photographs, Entropy of Love, (1996) Burning Desire, (1996-98) Mirror of Water, (1996-98) and Pure Land (1996-98), symbolize, respectively, the four natural forces in the world: air, fire, water, and earth.
