Motoi Yamamoto‘s incredible art uses salt, a compound that is essential to life. It’s no wonder that Yamamoto picked salt as his medium of choice; in Japanese culture, salt is not only a symbol of life, but purification. After losing his sister to brain cancer, salt seemed the ideal way for Yamamoto to purify his world and celebrate her life--as well as his own.
