Salted Lake, 2011

Video, 11:05 Min.

I made shoes covered in heavy salt crystals by suspending them in the saline waters of the Dead Sea. I took them to a frozen lake in the middle of Europe and placed them on the ice. The salt on each shoe melted a big hole in the ice. At night, they fell and drowned in the freshwater lake—burdened with history and gravity.

I shot the video in Poland, in the revolutionary city of Gdańsk, to create an act that touches upon 20th century collective memory: another place with shifting borders.
