A sculpture that challenges beliefs and theories is one worth seeing. The 'Invisible Dimension' — an on-going exhibition by Mariko Mori, showcases the artist's body of work as one that actively pushes the boundaries of material use, creative techniques and scientific theories.
Mariko Mori's sculptures are created with stainless steel and glass fiber; they boast a continuously otherworldly exterior and are designed as a commentary on the Ekpyrotic Universe — a cutting-edge astrophysics theory that contradicts the idea that the Big Bang marks the birth of the universe.
A sculpture that challenges spatial awareness is also one worth witnessing. Mori's work does not only communicate ideas on a conceptual level, but it also creates wonder through the way it interacts with space. Eerie and transcendental, the two central pieces — Cycloid V and Ekpyrotic String VI, visually defy gravity by "embracing the columns in the gallery."
