Rock salt, wood, vintage postcard, sunlight, 2013
100kgs of rock salt traced by hand onto the floor in a scale model replica of the floor plan of the basement of Fox Cottage. Site specific installation work conceived as a reaction to the experience of my journey to Hydesville, NY, USA in April 2013.
Fox Cottage is the birthplace of Modern American Spiritualist Movement and a Memorial to the Fox Family who lived in the cottage at the time Margaret and Katie Fox aged 9 and 11 years received the first proof of the continuity of life. This marked the beginning of the Modern American Spiritualism movement, March 31, 1848. This cottage was bought and moved from Hydesville, N. Y. in May 1916 by Benjamin F. Bartlett.
