'a change of plan (salt plain 12)' from the Death Valley MORE THAN EVER series, engages with the aftermath of human action on Earth’s topography. In keeping with Roberts-Goodwin’s interest in trade routes, colonisation, migration and cultural displacement, the work traverses geopolitically contested locations at lowest points of earths elevation.
The photographic series from which 'a change of plan (salt plain 12)' is a part, speaks of the extreme topographic and climactic shifts along the lowest point in North America, the Badwater Basin at 282 feet below sea level.
The feeling of stillness experienced is condensed in this image, with their intensely flat and disorienting surfaces. The artist was drawn to this ever-changing landscape, as a contested site of desolation, sublime beauty and conflict, to work with a team of environmentalists. Roberts-Goodwin researched and photographed the landscape as akin to engaging with a ruin aesthetic, established in the western tradition as sites of contemplation on humankind’s past achievements. Here, the images of stillness belie the ongoing environmental impacts that continue at sites of extreme elevation.
