Salt, Copper, Plexiglass

The floor was covered with a thin layer of salt, causing viewers to walk with discretion. When looking closer at the piece, there is nothing but a copper plate pressed within a solid block of salt and sealed within plexiglass. The nature in which oxidation occurs and the mixtures of the modified salt begin to pull the green reaction from behind the salt outwards, etching the copper from behind. Until all that is left is green stained salt and corroded copper. This process occurs over the span of a year.
