A “net” of reflective pieces infiltrates the depth of the blurred or fractured horizon to reveal silhouettes as deep three-dimensional objects. indd 48 2/12/07 6:02:23 PM re le as e m vacuu tilt and flash The “glint” instrument illuminates the distance of the horizon, momentarily foreshortening the three-dimensional space between foreground and background. Whilst in midair (right), mirrored fins are opened out and, for an instant, are tilted to flash to the observer.

The proposal responds to current thinking on a “managed realignment” of the coast, removing hard sea defenses such as sea walls and embankments that prevent the natural landward movement of the salt marshes, and allowing the land to be flooded by the incoming tide. Returning land to salt marsh encourages brackish vegetation and establishes the flood plain as an environmental buffer. A shallow plate is inserted into the intertidal zone, lying low on the horizon. The plate beds into the mud flats, with its extremities in the retreating tide and reaching up to the higher grass land beyond.

Its appearance is mutable, daily and seasonal fluctuations of light modify the colour and contrast of the sky and that of the objects that it touches. A series of ballistic instruments are designed to momentarily occupy the space between the sky and the ground.
