Photographic work, '37 Parallel North 3', from BEYOND THIS POINT series, extends this research with navigational satellite images, photographs, and traces of topographical terrain as a way to reflect on spatial ambiguity, navigational complexity, and the vertical notion of aerial terrain. Embracing multiple levels of vertical space from the ground to the atmosphere the photographic series '37 Parallel North 3' reveals the tension between orientation and disorientation, between knowing one’s location and being lost to spatial temporalities.
The concept of seeing from a distance—from either a celestial or terrestrial perspective—is evident in ‘37 Parallel North 3’ where we encounter the sublime vision of mountains of salt shimmering under the warm blue tones of an open sky. Captured at a distance, such industrialized salt evaporation ponds have been an inextricable part of the global terrain for centuries, and this site occupies a tectonic depression fed by ground and rainwater. The salt here shimmers from the sun’s reflective rays as it highlights the surface and seems to hold the flowing traces of the waters within its molecules. In one image, the ebb and flow of the salt landscape forms waves of sumptuous creases and folds across its form mnemonically referencing the billowing qualities materials. Roberts-Goodwin has grounded these salt mountains quite literally in the photographs, the horizon line pressed into the edge of the picture field compressing our view and enhancing the claustrophobic tension between the land and the sky.
