Go to design?dna to see more pieces by Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish environmentalist, artist and photographer who ‘collaborates with nature’ to create ephemeral works of land art as well as permanent sculptures. What a beautiful, sustainable artistic philosophy! Some of his pieces (especially the more fragile, transient ones) touch something primal inside of me. This creative philosophy feels so natural, so elementary, the kind of artistic approach we had as children, but lost along the way when we learned to value only want we could ‘keep’ or buy. Per desigh?dna’s suggestion, I’m excited to watch the documentary, Rivers and Tides, a film that followed Andy as he creates his magic (and won best documentary at the 2003 San Fran Int’l Film Festival.)
