sea salt/variable dimensions



Bright Vibration is a large floor installation, which recreates a mapping of the salinity of the oceans. I used sea salt and thus reflected on the symbolic dimension of this natural occurring element that has remained unchanged over time in significance and meanings, such as life and death, conservation and purification, and which was the subject of superstitions and a symbol of hospitality. My interest in using such a highly symbolic material like salt is suggested by its own etymology, which contains the words "vibration" and "lightwave", underlining its ability to create and preserve life or at the same time to destroy it; the emotional geography which is created is something that is changeable and elusive, a kind of "negative" in which the lands that have emerged are being built by subtraction.
