Overview

Andy Goldsworthy: Rivers and Tides - Working With Time

Documentarian Thomas Riedelsheimer shows us Andy Goldsworthy as he creates art in natural settings using natural materials such as driftwood, ice, mud, leaves, and stones. Goldsworthy comments on his "earthworks" and occasionally responds to offscreen questions from Riedelsheimer while he painstakingly builds his outdoors sculptures. With some exceptions, such as a winding stone wall that he built in Mountainville, NY, Goldsworthy's creations are intentionally mutable works. We see how several of them fall apart, melt, or drift away due to exposure to the elements; we also see, for example, a complex structure of interconnected sticks collapse while Goldsworthy is still working on it. Riedelsheimer takes us to Goldsworthy's home in Penport, Scotland, and to a French museum, but the emphasis of the film is on observing Goldsworthy at work.

I am studying Andy Goldsworthy in my design class at Oswego and I think he is amazing. This movie shows a lot of the work he has done and I think my favorite is the wall. My wife and I are going to see it this summer. I made her sit through all of these videos too and she even said she loved them. These are really informative about his designs and creations and you can really watch his process as he walks you through his ideas and how he does his work. There are also some mind blowing creations that you can see.

it was amazing to see the art that can be made with the earth and the changes that take place overtime that are traumatic yet beautiful at the same time

I found this when I wasn't looking. Like so many of the great things in life. It kept me wide eyed and peaceful throughout the entire production. It was one of those pieces of work that your soul is forever changed because of allowing yourself to share in it. Do yourself a favor and turn off the violence, death, sex and offensive humor and cuddle up with this wonderful film. From the music, to the words and especially the vision of each artist involved with making this masterpiece it's a joy to behold. Bravo. (I'm actually online right now buying my own copy. It something I'll watch over and over when those moments of life get you down. This will pick us right back up and remind us that our personal vision of the world is needed and wonderful. As long as it's respectful of all life around us.)
