Salt Labyrinth

Words

Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto creates huge labyrinths and other surreal designs by using salt as his only instrument. Looking at it, it´s like following a trace of his memory. The lines change and vanish as time goes by. While creating he cannot tell if he will reach the essential point until its very end, because lines are curved or leading into nowhere. The whole process of creating his labyrinths depend on Yamamoto´s psychological and physical conditions, as well as on the condition of the floor and the level of humidity. Like in everyday life, he just silently follows the trace of his memory and feelings, which are both, controlled and intensional right from the beginning.
