Matoi Yamamoto

Matoi Yamamoto uses salt to create large scale installations around Japan in his friends houses and galleries. It is his wish that the viewers may use his labyrinth installations as a tool for meditation and an opportunity to reach some final point in their own thoughts.

Let's hope he comes over to the UK soon, his work reminds me of Seizure by Roger Hiorns. Go to his website to see 'making of' videos which are equally as impressive as the final results and here to learn more about the meaning behind his installations.

[Thanks to BOOOOOOOM! for this]
