“In Mori’s work since 1996 the contours and shaping pressures of the contemporary image-stream are explored less by way of the classical-modernist strategy of distanciation and analysis than by impersonation: She uses her body as a lens that captures the light of the contemporary image-stream, and through certain enhancements and exaggerations makes it clear what the image-stream really wants of us.” Norman Bryson Parkett No. 54, 1998/99
