Artist's Description

Breaking Barriers
Defn. Barrier
Pronunciation: \ˈber-ē-ər, ˈba-rē-\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English barrere, from Anglo-French, from barre bar
Date: 14th century

1 a : something material that blocks or is intended to block passage…
3 : something immaterial that impedes or separates : obstacle

Some barriers:
sonic barrier
barrier reef
barrier island
blood barrier
sound barrier
vapor barrier
fire barrier
road barrier
barrier to entry

In some cases, the barriers are ones we put in place to prevent damage. e.g., fire barrier, vapor barrier, etc. Similarly nature has barrier islands that prevent greater wind damage from hurricanes to other island habitats (i.e. Assateague is a barrier island for Chincoteague, on the Eastern Shores of Virginia and Maryland, in the U.S.).

Barriers have a negative connotation in competitive, social, or market contexts – when they impede one from doing what they want, being where they want to be, etc.

Either way, barriers, like rules, are made to be broken.
