Salt Blocks

Even inanimate objects, particularly structures, communicate while seemingly immutable.
In Salt Blocks the structures are made out of blocks of salt, typically used for farm animals. Blocks are stacked high to form columns that are connected via mono-filament, as an invisible source of light directs the attention to the point of emergence.

Detail view of the light source illuminating the mono-filament
Two rows of columns, form a passageway within the exhibition space as the strings of light protrude and tie the structures together. The corrosive properties of the material are juxtaposed with the vital attributes of the substance, and are studied within the parameters of conversation and communication.
“Nothing is a stand alone or completely static. There is always subtle communication between objects.”
