Himalaya 2.0

In serial production, each item is identical to that which came before it and that which follows it. The repetitive sequence of process, conditions, and timing, are critical for the uniformity of the production line. The same is true for casting technologies, when in most cases, the mold is indifferent to the product, left unaffected by it. But what happens when the product affects the mold? Himalaya 2.0 presents a series of molds made of Himalayan salt, used over and over again for casting chocolate. The heat and moisture caused by the casting process influenced the path of assembly in two ways: the salt merged with the liquid chocolate, enriching its flavor; and the salt altered the shape of the mold causing each item on the production line to be different from the one that followed it.
