The One with Andy Goldsworthy


Tuesday, May 18, 2010

In an effort to clear up some space on my laptop (it's amazing how many gigabytes my photo folder is taking up, yet I simply can't bring myself to delete any pictures! Is anybody else paranoid like I am?!), I stumbled across some old BYU files. Specifically, the time I had to make up a class I missed and create an Andy Goldsworthy inspired work. Ever heard of him? He's amazing. He is a British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist living in Scotland and he produces site-specific sculpture and land art situated in natural and urban settings. His art involves the use of natural and found objects, to create both temporary and permanent sculptures which draw out the character of their environment. Check it:

I'm baffled by the things he can do with nature. No glue, no man-made objects, it simply is what it is. And this is my feeble attempt at copying his style: I stacked some rocks.

It's a lot harder than it looks!
