Faculty Exhibition

Laddie John Dill to light up Laguna Beach with "Electric Light Blanket"

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."
