    1. At Storm King Art Centre, Andy Goldsworthy has created a wall. But rather than this being a normal wall to separate one part from another, this has had some of his magic applied.It is an area that has used dry stone walls for many years, and the feature is built upon the remnants of an earlier wall before it reaches a wood. As it starts to pass through the trees it sweeps in a series of organic curves around the trunks until it reaches the lake, where is sinks beneath the water. On the other sid [...]


    2. A great volume about a wonderful piece of art that crosses the realms of sculpture, installation art and environmental art. It is amazing how much Goldsworthy's words and art speaks to me. What seems like a simple chore becomes an act of art with the right eye and the right approach. Great pictures in all seasons- as well as concept sketches and smaller pieces he worked on throughout the project. Happy to finally get to this book after eyeing it for years.


    3. instead of multiple projects based on a theme in the great outdoors like previous works, this was a contemplation of a single type of structure (old farm walls in UK) from numerous viewpoints (terrain, season, usage) and he actually changes a lot through repair.I enjoyed it but it was sort of like my experience with jazz: riffing on a theme and slowly tweaking it is complex and nuanced to the aficionado but boring and lazy-seeming to me.


    4. Andy Goldworthy is one of my gods. Installation/sculpture/nature art.his work echoes in my bonesI want to have him do a piece in Portland.
