poster for Mariko Mori "Tom Na H-iu"

This event has ended.

"Tom Na H-iu" is a place where souls waited to pass onto their next life in ancient Celts lore. The "standing stones" that were built according to these ancient myths inspired Mariko Mori to create a present day monument signaling life and death.
The piece is 3m tall, and made from glass. Mori's Tom Ha H-iu captures the death of stars and indicates its rebirth. This is realized by a computer connected to Super-Kamioka Neutrino Detection Experiment (Super-Kamiokande) that catches the light that stars generate when they die. The piece interacts with the incoming signals to radiate a new ray.
