(a collaboration with Chris Denson)
A collaborative installation dealing with simulacra, spectatorship and site exchange with a salt pit-mine. The installation environment was changing over time through the dehumidification and crystallization of a salt water brine that inhabited the whole space. Embedded into the enviroment were multiple castings of crystals taken from the mine and castings of the bags that contained the purified salt used for the installation.
