In Transition shows a birds-eye view of salt ponds near Newark, California. The wetlands that once occupied this part of San Francisco Bay were converted to salt ponds between 1897 and 1931. These ponds are still owned and operated by Cargill for industrial salt production. In Transition is an imagined landscape of hope: some of the salt ponds have been painted to look like wetlands in the process of restoration.
