Closely associated with the area of Piran are the saltpans on the coastal borders of Slovenia with Croatia. Situated between the land and the sea, it is a precarious site where the artificial is imposed on the natural, producing a hybrid form of landscape.


In the case of the saltpans the notion of the line is generated by an artificial, industrially produced material, foilpaper. Its reflective qualities as used in order to highlight the passage of time and light in this fragile environment.The line represents another form of “construction”, one that while retaining its geometric qualities, seems to almost merge and disappear in its surroundings.
