Ist die Arbeit Gefährlich?, 2002

This work was produced during an artist residency in Schwabisch Hall, Germany.  Schwabisch Hall is a walled medieval town with a long history of association with the salt trade. Ist die Arbeit Gefahrlich? utilized salt, a historically and ritually significant material, in combination with phrases taken from a German-English tourist phrase book to construct a simple interventionist work, from the perspective of a visitor, in the context of an historically and culturally rich small Bavarian town.
