Salt Sculptures: Collaboration of animals to realize art

The collaborative art project with animals that I called “Salt Sculpture” was very exciting. I installed salt rocks in a farm with animals. Goats, sheep and lambs had a strong desire to lick those salt rocks. Their licks created dimples on the salt. I was looking to get primitive visages out of these salt rocks. I covered some parts of the rock, and this lead the cattle to lick the open parts more and sometimes I would change the position of salts. Eventually I had readymade sculptures. I am glad that I discovered this technique with the help of animals. The result was quite satisfying.
