HOME > CINEMATIC VIDEO VIDEO FROM CARRIZO PROJECT
SALT 2004
VIDEO DOCUMENTATION | 1:20 | 4.2Mb
Born of the 6.5 magnitude San Simeon earthquake, central California, in December 2003, SALT begins with television’s six o clock lineup at a death scene, then cuts to a dark figure, wired for sound, who tracks aftershocks through the white expanses of the depopulated Carrizo Plain at Soda Lake. A hypnogogic dream makes you think you are tracking on location. SALT recalls the biblical Lot’s wife, who, despite warnings not to look back on her burning city, still turns to look - and at that moment, freezes into a pillar of salt. Is the freeze frame a white-out revenge against remembering too well, too much?
