The artist first started creating the salt works as a tribute to his sister, who died of brain cancer when she was just 24 years old. Apart from the personal motivation, Motoi also works with salt because of its presence in nature. Once the salt has served its purpose as part of his exhibits, the labyrinth is disassembled and reunited with the ocean.
