Salt Sculptures by Motoi Yamamoto

Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto uses the simple medium of salt to create large art installations. Ranging from intricate designs on the floor resembling a turbulent sea to a crumbling brick wall, these stark white creations evoke a sense of both wonder and mysticism. The compound of simple salt is transformed into unfathomable pieces of art, requiring careful placement and little room for error on these relatively massive structures. At a distance, the floor patterns resemble delicate lace as Yamamoto uses positive and negative spaces to his advantage.  These masterful works of patience and vision can only be seen in one iteration, likely never to be duplicated again.  [via itsnicethat]
