Fundamentally boundaries have always indicated a line dividing different places, a separation, or a closure, real or otherwise. The panels join together and are bound in such a way as to create a square, forming a barrier with an interior and an exterior and separated by an unstable and mobile border due to the movement of the water. Inside the square a yellow liquid is contained only for a few seconds by the barriers until it starts to pour out over the barriers spontaneously and blends with the rest of the sea. The forced overflowing of the barriers is an attempt to try to bring life to an enclosed space, so that metaphorically all identities can meet on the same plain, and be on the same level, and each of them accept the existence of the other. In this way a "unique" area is created that becomes communal, that amalgamates, that unites and does not divide, an area without any hostility and with a fluidity and slowness, allowing the juxtaposition of the near and far and the side by side, a space that includes and does not reject. This overflow of liquid is seen as an opening and helps in a certain sense the inevitable process of unity which starts spontaneously and is visible to us thanks to the yellow coloured liquid. This ‘opening’ overflow represents the practice of tolerance, of coexistence, of acceptance, it becomes a transformation and drastically reduces the harshness of the space and its power, it also abolishes its most hostile and aggressive barriers and becomes an enlarged space. The attempt to contain a body of water within a limited space, to create a rigid boundary in the middle of the sea, has definitely failed.
