Salt is one of the basic minerals produced by the earth. For centuries, it has been used throughout the world to preserve food. During the Open Studios, a short film was projected on the wall and a bed of rock salt and eggs cast in salt.  Salt is contained in tears, and is a symbol of pain and sorrow. Each egg, which is approximately the same size as a human brain, represents memory, and the fragility of life.
