    Artist Statement

    "Viewed from 'Eureka', the largest airship in the world, the vibrantly-colored Cargill Salt Flats of Redwood City, California present a Mondrian-esque scene. After over a century of salt production, Cargill Salt announced plans in 2006 to decommission the flats. Now, six years later, debate continues to simmer over the future of the 1433-acre plot: many environmentalists want it to be restored as bay wetlands, while Cargill hopes to develop housing for 30,000 residents."
