About artists:
Known in New York for her Wave UFO, Mariko Mori has for the past few years focused on preservation of natural resources and revitalization of local cultures through art. Her goal is to best express our appreciation and respect for nature, as demonstrated by her work in progress at Miyako Island in Okinawa.

Ingo Günther originally studied ethnography and cultural anthropology before studying art under Nam June Paik. In addition to his signature projects, Worldprocessor and Refugee Republic, which reflect his strong concern with global geopolitics, he has also explored nature by proposing a project to reclaim Japan's coast lines.

DJ Spooky (aka Paul D. Miller) is a versatile composer, multimedia artist, and writer whose border-crossing activities link sound to art, and vice versa. His interest in globalization and ecology brought him to Antactica, the Republic of Nauru, and Vanuatu for the past few years, resulting is such new works as Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica of 2009.
