Fractal Salt Mazes by Motoi Yamamoto

It’s not just for french fries and high blood pressure anymore: Yamamoto creates these sprawling labyrinthine designs using only salt. Also given to family members at the end of a funeral to ward off evil spirits, Motoi hopes that each line and branch of salt leads him to a memory of his sister, who died of brain cancer. This exhibit is currently showing at Hakone Open Air Museum in Kanagawa, Japan.
