Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto

Yamamoto Motoi (

born in Onomichi, Hiroshima in 1966 ) is an internationally renowned artist who calls his native Japan home. Motoi is known for working with salt, often in the form of temporary, intricate, large-scale installations. Salt, a traditional symbol for purification and mourning in Japanese culture, is used in funeral rituals and by sumo wrestlers before matches.

Motoi forged a connection to the substance while mourning the death of his sister, at the age of twenty-four, from brain cancer, and began to create art out of salt in an effort to preserve his memories of her. His art radiates an intense beauty and tranquility, but also conveys something ineffable, painful, and endless.

“Drawing a labyrinth with salt is like following a trace of my memory. Memories seem to change and vanish as time goes by; however, what I seek is to capture a frozen moment that cannot be attained through pictures or writings,” Motoi has said.

Kaaaat have you seen this?  😀

yesssssssssssssssssss and I am in love with her footwork and at the same time in despair because I will never be this cool

honestly this is amazing dancing.  and I danced at a school where I regularly watched dancers who placed in the world championships.  it’s just really important to me to make sure you all know that this isn’t just a great song and a creative pairing of art forms, it’s a kickass awesome piece of irish dancing.

I at least know enough that I recognize most of the moves in this!  I can even do some of them (that high kick with the heel click on “I go to to France for more funds”–I can do that!)  (… that one’s actually not a very challenging move).  But there’s so much in this (those fast twists and drums, and all those pretty, slow toe stands, ahhhh) that I would have to practice for a hundred years to come close to doing.

guess I’d better start practicing. 😛
