The perfect experience: nature meets technology

Last wednesday I had a wonderful evening going to the Mariko Mori exhibition Oneness at Aros Museum in Aarhus.

After my last visit with the Paul McCarthy exhibition which really wasn’t my cup of tea, I was thrilled about this. Three things that all exites me was key to the work. Nature in great photos, learnings from old eastern religion and culture combined with a fascination of technology. And all situated in a simple, aesthetic pleasing and calm atmosphere.


This was really something. A hugepart of the exhibition was equipped with 2-3 circles in front of the pictures with directional sound so you could hear the voice of Mariko telling the meaning with the picture or how she made it. It was interesting and seemed kind of intimate.

There was 3D movies, electronic art showing the effect of the moon on to the earth, old inscriptions telling the meaning of life and death, a giant plastic installation showing waves from the space and eluminating everytime a star dies. And the masterpiece of them all; the wave Ufo letting 3 persons enter a closed space with their brain activity projected on to the inside of the UFO.

We were so lucky to experience it since it was evening and the museum was half empty (didn’t mean any people, but we stood in line for 20 minutes and then got our admission into the UFO). But it was really worth the time. Here are some lovely pictures from Oneness around the world since we of cause weren’t allowed to take pictures inside

Here pictures from Groninger Museum. Where you can also find a press release on Moris art





And I also saw that Aros bought the most fascinating piece; the Tom Na H-iu. Read more here:

And I just once again must say how much I adore Aros for being able to be a world class museum in a little village as ours 🙂
