How amazing are these Salt Art Installations by Japanese artist, Motoi Yamamoto? Using only a plastic bottle and tons of Morton's table salt, the artist has created these incredible webs, mazes and stairs.
Yamamoto first began creating these intricate salt sculptures after his sister passed away. In Japanese culture, salt is associated with funeral rituals and the installations were a way for the artist to honor his sibling.
I'm so excited that this "Return to the Sea" exhibit is being displayed in Los Angeles, at Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University until Dec 8. I encourage Angeleno's to go check it out.
