BUILDING TO LET GO (Andy Goldsworthy)

.
With the recent storms and the heightening of the senses and cleansing by way of chaos that they can bring, along with my pondering of Daniel's Freedom To Roam and Cycles posts at Wine And Woodsmoke this morning (who, like me, also seems to appreciate the work of Andy Goldsworthy), it is only natural that I post the following excerpts from the documentary film by Thomas Riedelsheimer about Goldsworthy's work and relationship with his surroundings called RIVERS AND TIDES (Working With Time).

Thanks RT. Goldsworthy is one of my favorite artists. I like how he thinks of his work as changing rather than being destroyed. I know I'd be spewing forth profanity if the thorn and stick sculpture I'd spent hours working on blew away in the wind before I was done. Patient man.

Great movie, phenomenal artist. Rivers and Tides is one of those films that helps you catch your breath, slow down and re-connect. Talk about getting into the process.
