Salt Infrastructures & Geographies presents itself as a collection of unordered documents, drawings, and images. This allows the reader to move freely between different fragments of the thesis and consequently jump across the varying scales of geography and time that salt takes form in.
The research and language of this project was developed from an initial index tracing the presence of salt across the planet. This index (found in the following pages) understands salt as multiscalar and of varying visibility. In this index salt is a remnant of geology-past, public safety agent, and the center of a global extraction and seasonal stockpiling system.
Following research undertaken through a series of maps, drawings, catalogs, and diagrams, Salt Infrastructures & Geographies proposes three interventions (an urban walk, a new geological benchmark, and a new public shed) that exist amongst salt’s already nebulous presence.
