The blueprints were the outcome of the "salt performance". Sheets of blueprint paper were placed on the salt painting. A light was projected from beneath the salt painting onto the paper. After the addition of a chemical, the salt painting appeared on the blueprint paper.

Painting installation, 1996

Five canvases were stretched and hung one after the other so that they could be seen only by walking or bending under them. Both sides of the canvases were painted, one side in color and one side in black and white, suggesting associations of day and night. Both sides of the canvases contained part of a verse from Ecclesiastes, beginning with "A time to be born" on one side of the canvas and "A time to die" on the other side, progressing through the biblical text. until (Ecclesiastes 3).

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
