from Glebes's MFA Exhibition "In Defense of Native Soil"

In this work, Glebes collected leaking water from faucets in Baltimore City. THe water was then distilled and used to print one unfixed salt print. The water was then recollected and displayed in the gallery and used to water a crop of dandelions for the duration of the exhibition. The salt print was displayed with the water and faded to invisibility over the month.
