ART: Swirling Vortex of Salt by Motoi Yamamoto

Some artists want their works to last forever, but Motoi Yamamoto compares his art to an arrangement of fresh flowers — it’s alive to enjoy for just a short period of time, and then it becomes a beautiful memory.

Yamamoto used a small oil dispenser, similar to a condiment squeeze bottle, to create the salt art that covers the floor of the gallery.

The artist started working on the installation on February 24 and just completed it last week. The opening reception is tonight and it will remain on display until April 12. The salt, which was donated by The Morton Salt Company, will ultimately be dispersed into the Great Salt Lake.
