Burnham wrote in the heyday of post-object art and much of his concern in "Great Western Saltworks" is with the end-point of Modernist reductionism. According to his theoretical analysis the inevitable and complete disappearance of art, or at least sculpture, is imminent. Burnham's reassessment of figurative sculpture with respect to 17th-century mechanical automata on the one hand and the anthropomorphic robotic sculpture (cyborg art) on the other fundamentally disrupts the conventional histories of Modernism.
He describes art as ‘the philosopher’s SALT’, a vague allusion to the use of salt in alchemy as a chemical that transmutes base metals into gold by uniting opposites.
