The faces or profiles which Anne Lord creates in claypan soil will disintegrate because of the nature of the soil. It is high in mineral content, with soda and salt being the most obvious components. The reason for using this sterile and unstable soil is to create a metaphor for the real threat of increasing global desertification. The building and disintegration of a subtle form is documented on slide film and now on computer.
