Gazing down at foamy-looking swirls of white on black from a niche in an ancient castle, you almost feel as if youâ€™re an astronaut watching a hurricane form above the ocean on the distant Earth. These cellular arrangements form tentacular appendages of varying opacity, meeting in the center to create a vortex effect. They are, in fact, made of salt, with each grain symbolizing a memory or a moment in time. Artist Motoi Yamamoto installed â€˜Floating Gardenâ€™ and â€˜Labyrinthâ€™ Â within the castle tower at Aigues-Mortes in Southern France for an exhibition called â€˜Universâ€™ Sel,â€™Â on display through the end of November.
