Essence of Life

W - Australia 2005, Northam, earth, salt, sand, charcoal, salt tolerant plants, L 13m

The place I choose on this farm for my work is the shore of a salt lake.
My work concentrates on the essential things you need for living: Salt, water fertile earth, fire.

To opposite poles are the infertile sand and the flowering salt tolerant plant. The plant is the sign of life and the hope. My work shows the borderline between life and death; on one side the salt and on the other the water. There must be an equilibrium in our body, both are sign of life or death.
