Motoi Yamamoto creates these amazing designs with loose salt, or salt baked into bricks for large structures. He started using salt as his only medium when his sister passed away from brain cancer twelve years ago, and he looks at his labyrinth-esque art as at once futile yet necessary to his healing. It’s also interesting to note that in Japanese culture salt is often considered a symbol of purity.
See a nice interview with Motoi here.

I’ve a few days I’ve this blog bookmarked as a favorite site. A little funny, because even kilak weeks ago about this forum I said before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the extraordinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. Im not talking now in regards to a specific address here, but all is discussing blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, yesterday I searched the web resources in the search for specific knowledge. A bit of the case visited several blogs, because although subject matter often appears inside the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy found this blog, I was more than surprised. As it turns out the issue presented here is very extensive. No doubt that when it comes to content is the better service available today in the Polish network. Not only that even scientific, popular, and service breaks aren’t able to match this portal. To date not succeeded, and also contact mcdougal of all the major publications. But I am hoping it succeeds it will email my email and failed to disappoint me, being a faithful reader for the future and will continually grow your blog. Because they sites are thin on a lawn in the Polish Internet. Why did I write this all? All through my character, I don’t like making mistakes, however , if is to admit them. Such is the situation here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on such basis as this blog Im ready to admit that kind of web pages can be very valuable, kind and most importantly interesting.
