Sydney based artist Julia Davis focuses on the relationship between objects, places and spaces. With works installed in salt lakes, deserts, coastal precincts and parklands in addition to galleries, Davis explores the experiential as well as ideas of temporality and duration.

In Headspace, Davis used salt harvested from Lake Brown in Western Australia to create a cast of her head and shoulders. After, she reintroduced the sculpture to its original source and documented its dissolution over a 9 week period.
