Nature-Shaping Monuments
Andy Goldsworthy Creates Art that Develops a Life of its Own

By: Andrew Robertson (Star) May 21, 12

Andy Goldsworthy turns to nature for inspiration, more specifically the effect that nature has on his artwork after it has been completed. Goldsworthy’s sculptures reflect the natural aesthetics of the world that exists beyond the urban environment.

Many projects involve the re-introduction of nature into a previously uninhabitable area, taking what was once decrepit and decaying and turning into something vibrant and full of life. This type of art is call Wooly Pocket, the combination of nature with architecture and allowing the nature to shape the surrounding environment over time.

Andy Goldsworthy’s projects continue to shift and develop a life of their own long after the artist has left his creation to be adopted by and impacted through nature.
