Mariko Mori at Espace Louis Vuitton – Omotesando 「森万里子 エスパス ルイ・ヴィトン/表参道」

New York based Japanese artist Mariko Mori is exhibiting “Infinite Renew” at Espace Louis Vuitton (Ends January 5th, 2014).

The art space features 8 amazing pieces, 7 out of which have been especially created for the show. These high-tech spirals that go from floor to ceiling are connected to the visitors with a camera/LED real-time monitor and change their color as the viewer walks around them (Infinite Energy I, II, III, 2013 Fiberglass, mirror, LED, real-time control system).

“The exhibition Infinite Renew indeed invites the visitors to experience an endless renewal of invisible energy, but it also reminds us of “our common faith of the endless renewal of its energy”. ( From Espace Louis Vuitton website)
