I think this artist may be borderline nuts crazy - but absolutely amazing just the same. {Motoi Yamamoto} started this form of art following the death of his sister. In Japanese culture, salt is not only a necessary element to sustain human life, but it is also a symbol of purification. He uses salt in this way to create large scale patters on floors. He also uses it in baked brick form to construct large interior structures. Motoi views his installations as exercises which are futile yet necessary to his healing, especially the labyrinths.
