Yamamoto Motoi’s salty installations were first inspired by the death of his sister from complications due to brain cancer. It was his way o keep her memory alive. At first, he created a three-dimensional brain as a tribute to his sister’s condition. Later he explored the myriad ways he could shape and manipulate salt. All his installations are entirely handmade and any flaws or imperfections are left intact. After several weeks on display, the salt is gathered and poured back into the sea.
