Andy Goldsworthy - Rivers and Tides

T sent me the link for this excellent film of Andy Goldsworthy at work, and I would recommend watching it.


I was particularly taken with his comments about the tides and time: 'The relentlessness of it; there's no getting away from the fact that the sea is going to be here.'  Made me think of my coastal erosion metaphor and that there's no getting away from it, change is inevitable.

I stumbled upon your blog and have been reading a lot of your posts, I'm fascinated by your work and I seem to be exploring a lot of materials similar to you. I hope you keep up your posts and I look forward to reading them in the future. All the best, Alex Pughe.

Thanks Alex - it's a struggle to keep up with everything, but definitely an incentive when you know people are actually reading them!

How are you finding your time at GSA? Are you studying Undergraduate or for an MA?
I'm at the stage were I'm considering universities to continue to study at and I'd love it if you had any points on GSA.
