Motoi Yamamoto uses salt to design unfathomably intricate - and deeply personal - floor sculptures. His sister died of brain cancer more than a decade ago. To honor her memory, he began sketching with salt - in Japan, a traditional symbol for purification and mourning. The meandering patterns are meant to convey a sense of eternity. The artist invites viewers to deconstruct the labyrinths and redistribute its salt elsewhere - in the sea or the soil or wherever else it might contribute to new life.
