"The Salt series is from the body of work titled A-salted intermission and is a result from four years of researching and creating work about community, social activism, and awareness. During my second trip to Dakar, Senegal, I sat on the shores of Lac Rose, (Pink Lake) and bursting with emotion, observing the laborers both in the Salted Lake and on the shoreline carrying salt for commercial sales, I was inspired. Three years later I was invited to the Dakar Biennale 2022 with my A-salted intermission installation and performance work, which deals with the socio-political history and ecology of Lac Rose in Dakar and Cargill Salt flats in the East Bay of San Francisco. The work is live and is activated by weather temperature and location."-Gabon, 2022
