PLAYA. Artist Residency Program. Summer Lake, Oregon. April 2014.

Temporary land art installation + film (7:30).

Kevin Doyle -- artist.

"sentinels" is both a filmed, durational performance and an impermanent work of land art created at Summer Lake, Oregon while a resident at PLAYA in 2014. Created by hand with a series of 6-8 wood pylons that washed up on the shore during my residency. Summer Lake is one of only twelve alkaline lakes in North America. This project bears the sub-title: for the fathers.
