High above Main Beach, a series of red, blue and purple lasers danced on the sand in silence.
The colors reflected in every direction imaginable, spanning miles of the coastline.
As artist Laddie John Dill tested the laser light exhibit on a recent Wednesday night, he was hoping mist would rise above the ocean near the shore. The haze would help make the laser beams all the more visible.
“You see how the colors pick up on the edge?” Dill asked. “It’ll be quite amazing.”
Dill, a light and space artist who made the glass and argon-gas Light Sentences — pieces that appear as streaks in space — in the late 1960s and early 1970s, was commissioned by the Laguna Art Museum to create a live-performance art piece as part of the museum’s annual Art & Nature program.
