  • Information

    Using materials from nature, Goldworthy allows the elements to have the last say in his beautiful creations, as his ingenious patterns of wood, leaves, stone, and ice move and erode over time. Filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer followed the artist for over a year intimately documenting his improvisational process and capturing the serene spectacle of his works. Although Goldsworthy’s sculpture is best known through still photography, Rivers and Tides, with its haunting musical score by Fred Frith, is an altogether different way of experiencing the artist’s most ephemeral and fleeting masterpieces.
