Andy Goldsworthy Rivers and Tides Documentary

Rivers and Tides is a documentary about the artist, Andy Goldsworthy, who uses nature as his inspiration AND his canvas.  Whether he's making an archway of ice that glitters in the morning sun, a snake made of leaves that he sends meandering through a stream, or a stone wall adorned with a decoration of sheep's wool, every sculpture he creates is astounding.  Not only is the finished product amazing to behold, but so is the process.  It's fascinating to hear him speak about light and color and movement.  He has a gift of observation that makes one aspire to be a more careful explorer of the beauty that surrounds us.

And if you're able to view the documentary, make sure that you watch the short films in the extras section.  More beauty to behold . . .
