Salt Field

HOUSE 2014

Brighton Festival (with Yinka Shonibare MBE)

A site specific installation commissioned for the HOUSE 2014 Brighton Festival, and installed in the context of the Brighton Waste House.

Salt Field is composed from ready made industrial salt blocks, drip-fed with a constant supply of water throughout the exhibition period. As the salt blocks slowly dissolve, the displaced salt reforms on adjacent blocks as new crystalline growths. Metaphorically the migration of substance suggests the current swathes of relocating populations.

The chosen material of the sculptural work also references the significance of salt throughout history and its value in global economies and trade.
