Japanese artist Midori Harima has been captivated by her exposure to media information since she was a child growing up in the suburbs of Tokyo. She investigates our perceptions in an information saturated society by reconstructing figures through photography, projection, black-and-white Xeroxed images, and sculpture. Her interest in our everyday experiences with media has given her opportunities to showcase her work alongside art veterans like Yoko Ono and at institutions such as Deitch Studios.

In 2000, Midori Harima graduated with a Bachelor's degree from the Women's University of Fine Art in Kanagawa, Japan. She has completed multiple artist residencies in New York, California, and the Czech Republic. Harima has been part of exhibitions at Maiden Lane Exhibition Space (New York), Gallery Jin (Tokyo), Deitch Studios (New York), White Space (London), Honey Space (New York), Kevin Bruk Gallery (Miami), and Kala Arts Institute (Berkeley, California). Her work is part of the Francis J. Greenburger Collection and the Buhl Collection.
