i have been in a little fit of creation lately which tends to drown everything else out..but the whole family crawled into bed the other night and watched "rivers and tides", a documentary on andy goldsworthy. i thought when i ordered it i was getting a film on the american artist that makes amazing reed and grass structures (name? do you know?) but was thrilled to learn about mr. goldsworthy in his stead. this artist/naturalist creates artwork on site using only material and tools that nature supplies in the immediate area. sometimes it falls apart before he is finished, sometimes several times and he never finishes. the film is just mesmerizing. we are so inspired to build something on the beach this summer, we can hardly stand it. i could not find an official website for him but i did find these images via landliving.com.
