Motoi Yamamoto

In Japanese culture, salt is an integral ingredient during rituals for the recently deceased.  Artist Motoi Yamamoto, changed by the premature death of his sister, creates patterns of remarkable size and complexity using the sea borne seasoning.  His labyrinths resemble trees, falling leaves, or an aerial view of suburbia.  Each installation takes weeks to create, his choice of medium and the repeating nature of his work touches on the complex simplicity of life; a sense of interconnectedness amongst anonymity.
