Artist's Description

It is a surreal place: The Salton Sea Beach. Though it is hard to see, there is a rotted trailer inside that wood frame – just left there to rot. The white in the foreground is the salt-dust from the evaporating Salton Sea (see http://web.me.com/toby.snelgrove.mac/Salton_Sea:West_Side/About_the_SaltonSea.html for a little background on the Salton Sea). In the 80’s, the water authority dumped millions of gallons of water into the sea so they would not lose their water budget for the next year (how asinine … but not an unusual financial budget activity at the end of a fiscal year … mind you, this was water not dollars. Unfortunate, there was a flood that same year and the water lever went up 6 feet … and all the shore homes were ruined. They have been left to rot. More to come
