Dr. MacAuley wanted to share the link for the following video on Goldsworthy. Check it out!
This was absolutely incredible! The way he was able to keep all of these pieces together and even apart was completely fascinating. I tried to look up the website at the end of the clip because i wanted to see if they had more videos on him but I couldn’t find anything…only the wikipedia page saying it was made into a full length documentary. It would be cool if we could see pieces of it on one of the last days on classes
I will see if I can get the video.
Yes, the documentary, “Rivers and Tides”, is worth viewing in its entirety because it shows him at work, collaborating with stone and ice and water and other elemental phenomena. Here are few more images of Goldsworthy’s work, most of which dissolves back into the earth or dissipates into the sky or sea.
This was very intriguing! It was so strange how he did that! I always admire art, I plan to take several art classes in the future. His way of balance and structure is incredible I wish I could do some of the creations he has made. I would love to know his thoughts behind the scenes as to what made him do it and how. As Melissa said, we should see if would could view some clips on this on Thursday! It would be a great way to end the class and semester.
Wow, what he did here is incredible. It takes a lot of patience, and the perfect balance in order to make these structures. It is a true expression of his artistic ability. I definitely wouldn’t be able to do anything that he does!
Both videos are honestly incredible but I’m really intrigued by his repetition of circles and curves in that second video. Its honestly beautiful and makes me wonder if theres something to be said with the cycle of nature and the constant circle of life…I wonder if this is intentional or if he makes these shapes without realizing through his subconscious…
Melissa, great point. The idea of circle or spiral runs from the water going down the bathtub to the galaxy spinning millions of light years away. What is it about a circle that finds itself repeated throughout the natural world? The early Greek philosophers saw the circle as the perfect form: all points equidistant from a center.
This is a good example of how having patience can lead to a deep connection with the elements. You have to have some deep concentration to manage that.
