Salt Sculptures by Motoi Yamamoto Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto uses the simple medium of salt to create large art installations. Ranging from intricate designs on the floor resembling a turbulent sea to a crumbling brick wall, these stark white creations evoke a sense of both wonder and mysticism. The compound of simple salt is transformed into unfathomable pieces of art, requiring careful placement and little room for error on these relatively massive structures. At a distance, the floor patterns resemble delicate lace as Yamamoto uses positive and negative spaces to his advantage. These masterful works of patience and vision can only be seen in one iteration, likely never to be duplicated again.
Now that’s a sick madness! If you have never heard about Japanese wood sculptor named Haroshi, go get the wind of his most original conceptual art. As a creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks, Haroshi passed for a man of considerable resourcefulness.

Rolling through the bay is an abstract toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. It has about 100,000 of toothpicks. The amazing part, is that it has four ping pong ball paths that roll through different landmarks of San Francisco.
I had the wonderful opportunity to see this wonderful paper craft art installation by a genius of the name of Wataru Itou (伊藤航), a young student of a major art university here in Tokyo. The installation is hand made over four years of hard work, complete with electrical lights and a moving train, all made of paper! Clearly, this man must have created one of the most stunning examples of Paper Craft in the world?
Mail-Order Bride Artist Terry Border is one of those people who has a secret gift.
Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. Installed three times in the past year, the next deployment will be next week from June 9–13 at DMY Berlin's International Design Fair , which is now in its 8th year. The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week. At the last installation inside Odeon, a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape.
fuck you is the new thank you Welcome!
This 3D Paper artwork is an example of what can be attained by using a simple foam board, a poster board, push pins, spray paint, tacky glue and tons of patience. Designed by Taras Lesko, this 3D paper artwork combines the art of 3D Paper crafting and Poster technique perfectly. This piece is actually titled, “Honey, can you make something for that big wall”, which is exactly what I did when my wife put me to the challenge.
