Designed by artist Jacob Hashimoto, Gas Giant is an installation featured in The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. The installation explores the boundaries of landscape and gravity, with over 30,000 individual pieces, the art piece is always changing and always growing.

Jacob compares his installation to a language, with each section of the installation capable of being rearranged to make a new scene or experience in time.

You can find a video of Jacob creating his installation here, as well as more information here. (Via NY Times)

Japanese artist motoi yamamoto is one of a kind. With his preferred medium being Salt, Motoi creates these insanely complex and monumental salt labyrinths.

‘there is no set motif in the patterns I draw‘ yamamoto explains, ‘but shapes and forms that can be found in nature such as typhoons, whirling tides, and galaxies are part of my work.’

Two new installations have been completed in salt lake city, utah, encompassing the ground floors at Westminster College and Weber State Univiversity. The giant circles are filled with meticulously place chains of salt, linked to each other within the complex labyrinth.The swirling, hurricane-like pattern is used as a symbol in east asia, representing life and death, resurrection and rebirth and the displays of vitality.

For more information on the process take a look at this video about Return to the Sea. (Via Design Boom)
