laeso salt

The island of Laeso was an inspiring place to consider the meaning of preservation. After all, salting is a fundamental method for saving food. And that means humans have been searching, procuring and trading salt for a long time. Even the modern day word for payment–Salary–comes from the old practice of the Roman army paying soldiers their worth in salt. But, until I actually stood in that building with those hot ovens and mounds of fire wood, I never really understood the cost of preservation–which you can read about here. So I put together this short film about Laeso Salt. This short film depicts the heat and the sound and the time I witnessed at Laeso Salt. It is an introduction to the constructed presence of a singular mineral and of preserving food in general.
