Incredible Salt Art by Motoi Yamamoto

In tribute to his little sister who died from the brain cancer, Japanese artist Yamamoto Motoi spends hundreds of hours carefully pouring table salt on the gallery floor to create incredible patterns. At first, Yamamoto created a three-dimensional brain as an exploration of his sister’s condition. Later, the artist wanted to see what would happen if the patterns of the brain were flattened.

“Drawing a labyrinth with salt is like following a trace of my memory,” he says.
