I took my own advice this week and started to pull down and enjoy the books that had been trapped at the bottom of my stacks.  Today it was Andy Goldsworthy: Wall.    The relationship between his work and its surroundings is transformed by the seasons, the weather, and environmental changes like succession.

The temporary installation created from sumac leaves in the fall:

    That’s the book that has photos of the Goldsworthy wall that I pass on one of my routes to the office — you wrote about it back in January, I think. The wall with the tree trunk is also in my town, but on somebody’s property and not visible from the road (those folks have a great collection of contemporary art but I haven’t figured a way yet to wheedle aninvitation). And if you haven’t seen it in person, “The Wall” at Storm King is an absolute delight.

    Tom, I thought of you when I was leafing through the book and saw the boulder in the wall! Also, from the other post, I have to amend – I think “Blueberries for Sal” is my second-favorite, w/ Ducklings coming in third, and “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good Very Bad Day” comes in at 4th!

    There is an amazing documentary on Andy Goldsworthy called Rivers And Tides.
