"Salt is as free as the water suspending it when it'sdissolved, 
and as immutable as stone when it's dry"
  Sallie Tisdale

SALT follows Rossi’s ICE series as part of her decade-long project “METAMORPHOSIS” on global warming.
The artist ponders what would happen once all the glaciers have melted and global temperatures continued to increase?  
As water evaporates and lakes disappear, only the minerals remain, and salt flats
 - massive evaporative basins that extend for miles appear ; bearing silent witness to our planet's transformation.
