Surveyors tape, blown glass, tracing paper, led lights
Lay lines is about the areas eroded by water movement across the rocks, the long narrow voids where the grass can get a footing and the rainwater collects. Tasseled lines of pink surveyors tape fill the cracks of the huge granite boulders at the edge of the sea. Hyacinth blue spheres are submerged at different levels in the pool of bog water. The water appears black until the reddish of the water is made visible appearing as a red arc in the glass the clear coating glass of the spheres. Slivers of rectangular trace paper rattle in the wind on the rock surface. At night tiny yellow LED lights illuminate the fissures in the boulders and look like tiny cliffside villages.
