Salt (baked in domestic oven), steel and aluminium foil, 10x125x60cm

If what you see is not what you think you see, what does that imply? Salt's alchemical and ephemeral properties suggest the dichotomy of life's forces; transformation, desecration, purification and healing.

In my work salt is likened to the preservation of memory. The fused layers in the core samples suggest what is initally hidden.
