Art on Campus
Japanese-born, Harlem-based visual artist Tomo Mori has turned the Miller Theatre lobby into an immersive landscape, surrounding viewers with a waterfall of designs and digital images. Her site-specific work, Concerto Encircling, on view for the 2016-17 season, uses a cut-and-paint mosaic process. The artist has covered deep blue walls with transparent vinyl pieces and daubed paint-saturated sponges into designs to continue the colorful imagery across the lobby’s glass doors. Mori has created another work, Sakura Sanctuary, on the lobby’s southern wall, evoking the falling petals of cherry blossom trees.
