    Ten at a time, viewers enter the circular confines of Mariko Mori’s video installation Link, 1995-2000 (Image courtesy of Dirk Pauwels), leaving behind the gallery environment and entering what the artist calls a “utopian space, a placeless space.” (M. Mori, Mariko Mori: Dream Temple, Fondazione Prada, Milan, 1999). Projected from without is a seamless montage of interconnected landscapes of past, present and future cities, a panoramic utopia in which the bustling metropolises of New York, Hong Kong and Paris are interwoven with visions of Angkor Wat, Teotihucan and Giza. A former fashion model and designer, Mori’s ascendant artistic career has seen her invest cutting-edge technologies with strains of Buddhist spirituality and other Eastern philosophies in a quest for trans-historical meaning and transcendence; with Link, Mori assumes the role of “techno-shaman” (D, Molon, “Countdown to Ecstasy,” Mariko Mori, Serpentine Gallery, London, 1998), immersing her audience in a totalized, otherworldly experience in which the boundaries of time and space cease to exist. “By using technology and a spherical projection, I am trying to submerge the observer in a utopian space, a placeless space… At the same time I am committed to giving shape to my imagination, or better yet, to the idea of consciousness, to immerse myself and look inside it…. My approach is to perceive or sense various passages or potential spaces that connect our consciousness to another world.” (M. Mori, Mariko Mori: Dream Temple, Fondazione Prada, Milan, 1999).
