The Secret Solution

She's got her ION you! By: Morgan Edwards

Description:

I created a mole that represents Angelina Jolie when she played the role of an accused Russian spy in the movie Salt. I connected this title to the compound sodium chloride, otherwise known as table salt. In this thrilling action movie her name was Evelyn Salt and she was on the run from people who thought she was a secret agent. I named her The Secret Solution because sodium chloride is a solution and her character was a secret spy. I dressed her in black with spy accessories as Evelyn Salt dressed in the movie.
