For What It’s Worth, March 2015
This piece looks to visually show salt in it’s universal and unifying role of both the land and the sea – interlinking both through how it is gathered, transported, distributed and finally consumed. A commodity which has taken it’s place as a vital tool for preserving, creating wealth and maintaining communities of people. I am fascinated by the simple quiet life that it now lives out.
