TITLE OF WORK
Salt Chair by Gregory Beson
ABOUT THE WORK
The world in which we live is made up materials; naturally formed by the earth or derived by humans from these naturally occurring materials. Our world has been dramatically altered by human intervention. While we can read these materials with our senses; semantic cues, aesthetic preferences, color, light, perceived density, smell and taste are we all able to identify what our world is truly made of? Are we able to calculate the cost to the earth and environment? The salt chair is crafted from 76 Himalayan pink; a mono material, an architectural module (bricks), a natural mineral, religious reference, preservation and theories of healing. This chair attempts to reflect our complex relationship with the natural world and its resources.
