Mariko Mori lives and works in New York. In the fall of 2007, Deitch Projects was pleased to present Tom Na H-iu, an exhibition of new work by Mariko Mori. The title of the exhibition draws its name from the monumental 4.5 meter sculpture of the same name, that was exhibited along with two other large-scale sculptures, Flatstone and Roundstone. The works develop Moriís continued interest in a fusion of art and technology, Buddhism, and the idea of universal spiritual consciousness. Drawing from ancient rituals and symbols, Mori uses cutting edge technology and material to create a strikingly beautiful vision for the 21st century.

Mori's 2003 installation at Deitch Projects was Oneness, a project held in conjunction with the Public Art Fundís installation of her Wave UFO project. Oneness is an allegory of connectedness, a representation of the disappearance of boundaries between the self and others. It is a symbol of the acceptance of otherness and a model for overcoming national and cultural borders. It also is a representation of the Buddhist concept of oneness, of the world existing as one interconnected organism.

Mariko Moriís remarkable sculpture, Wave UFO was included in the 2005 Venice Biennale, after being exhibited in New York with the Public Art Fund and at the Palazzo Ducale, Genoa. It was recently included in her solo exhibition at The Groniger Museum, and at the Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark, as part of Oneness, their survey of Mariko Moriís work.
