That must be a deeply uncomfortable environment. Unless the dust control is downright heroic, just breathing probably feels like huffing seawater in fairly short order.
Ever bake a potato on a bed of rock salt? The salt pulls out a lot of moisture, making a light, flaky potato. So it’s more like huffing dry seawater.
Speaking as a vegetarian of many decades I’m going to sound crazy mentioning this, but I used to cook everything…rock salt is one of the finest ways to cook a fish. Lay down a layer of the salt, then the fish, then more salt to cover, and bake in an oven. What it does for potatoes, it does for the fish too.
Have you tried Canarian potatoes? You boil them in water with a lot of salt, then discard most of the water and keep cooking with a foil lid over the pan until the water evaporates and you get wrinkly skins and a thin crust of salt on the outside (or you can boil them, then bake them). They’re great with the traditional chili and coriander sauces (mojo picón and mojo verde).
I’ve visited these a few times (same state, different sites). You probably want to wear sunglasses, but other than that it’s like sand dunes that smell of the ocean. Otherworldly but kind of nice.
Just think of the ink she saves when printing these for sale or exhibition.
Will kosher salt work? Or does it have to be the very large grain rock salt?
Some art has to be taken with a grain of salt.
