LINES IN THE SAND


Play Movie
Lines in the Sand is a lyrical portrait of art and meditation. Using simple handmade tools Encinitas artist Kirk Van Allyn creates public art on the pacific shore. Beginning at low tide, the process of creation is the work of art. Using the beach as his canvas, the artist paints with the elements ---- sand, surf and light. Van Allyn creates a labyrinth, a sacred space. His body dances through time, leaving patterns of beauty in the sand. The tide doesn't wait; its return offers a fresh canvas for the morrow.

AWARDS & REVIEWS
"Your film is thought provoking and tasteful. It does what art should do--it entertains and enlightens. It caused me to notice something I'd missed in person. Kirk's way of forming the lines is done as a sort of dance. The movements are precise, done with economy of energy and motion. They are mindful acts--meditation in action. I not only enjoyed watching it, I learned something. Thanks. Good work."
