Salt Trails
Salt, PVA, Wall, Sunlight
2015

This installation featured salt sculptures attached to the wall. The work became activated by sunlight once a day where the salt would reflect the sunlight and simultaneously create shadows resulting in a black and white drawing. Salt routes and migrations inspire the title, Salt Trails. The salt reflects a hopeful light but the long shadows serve as metaphorical markers of the mistreatment of the migration of peoples.
