3 Salt Tarps, Half Red Half White
3 Salt Tarps are borrowed from the road salt industry. They are on their way from a weaving plant in Ohio and a sewing plant in Illinois to cover a salt pile. At OPUS, these sheets wrapped the legendary Merriweather Post Pavilion stage to create a momentary space of meditation amongst the ghosts of Hendrix, Fitzgerald and many other legends that have adorned the stage.
