Yamamoto Motoi

Yamamoto Motoi creates salt gardens, intricate capillaries, spreading across floors like a mysterious language. Salt holds a strange place in world cultures, vital for our survival and part of our mythologys of love, life and death.
Often Yamamoto Motoi creates these magical intricacies and then invites the audience to gather the salt and return it to the sea.
