The “Barrier” is made with 5 high-powered lasers that create a unique 1.5 km red light that crosses Ostend beach for “THE CRISTAL SHIP BY NIGHT” light festival.
It is a conceptual line that defines the coast of Ostend and divides the beach and the sky horizontally into 2.


This red light beam paints a spatial and conceptual division that proposes a reflection on the limits and barriers that exist in our society, in our minds and at our borders.
Social and intellectual polarisation is ever more present in our society and requires joint reflection that leads us to a common cause.


In this occasion, SpY has envisioned the installation of a Barrier is made with 5 high-powered lasers that create a unique 1.5 km red light. Given the simplicity and visual power of the project, citizens and visitors are immediately surprised by the decontex- tualization of the place that suggests a spatial and conceptual division of the beach and the sky horizontally into 2.
