Created by New York artist Jonathan Schipper, Detrius is an installation that uses robots to build salt sculptures while viewers relax and watch from a hot tub.

The installation is currently on exhibit at The Boiler in Brooklyn and it consists of a few tons of salt spread out on the entire gallery floor of the room and a mechanism hanging from the ceiling through four cables. The mechanism moves across the space and lowers itself to build three-dimensional structures made of salt. The salt sculptures resemble architectural forms and skylines.
