Salt is very important material for me but more important thing is theme. Death and life, rebirth.

And tears. Also tears.

faience

@laurel yes so many tears.

@queenieliz but what happens to all his work when the installation is over? I hope the museum/gallery can somehow freeze it in place forever!

@queenieliz: They make a lot of really big pretzels.

@queenieliz At the link they say that the public is often invited to help take it down by filling up bags and releasing the salt into the ocean. I loved that little part, because I've always appreciated art that just melts back into the world when it's done.
