"If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things." — Henry Miller
The base elements of human existence—beauty, love, play, rest—like the elements of nature—air, water, fire, mineral—are the most indescribable.
Familiarity and necessity make them things we sense yet take for granted as we rush through life. Art captures these fleeting feelings and, with them, transforms space into experience; it is the means by which we take communion in shared moments of awe. With SALT
, Flux explores the intimacies of this sense/space by creating a place for it to emerge, crystallize, and bloom; this place of reflection and inspiration speaks to the necessities of life.
SALT draws inspiration from our desert, its immensity and
eternal mystery. Its geology, traversed by timeworn paths, charts ancient past and imminent future—our search for sustenance, community, and purpose. Erosions and accretions record creatures and peoples who have come and gone; crystalline caves and tectonic plates store cyclical histories deeper than water and rock, annals of our former selves. And though the eons and eras by which we measure creation inform the illusion that time travels in a singular direction, we know
time as flow. The persistence of memory, the long now, and the ever-receding future, each distinct in our mind’s eye, are constructions within which we travel, roots for anchoring ourselves.
