MOTOI YAMAMOTO: LANDSCAPES OF SALT

The Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto, made two works on a monumental scale, with table salt, which occupy the entire ground floor of the University of Westminster, Utah. The works consist of a circle that is interconnected with lines of salt, linked together in a complex maze. The swirl pattern, similar to a hurricane, is used as a symbol in East Asia, to represent vitality, life and death, resurrection and rebirth. “There are no set motifs in the patterns I draw”, says Yamamoto. “But the silhouettes and shapes that can be found in nature, such as typhoons, tides, whirlpools, and galaxies are part of my job.”
