My mom scoffed at the first Andy Goldsworthy book I got as a present for my birthday. And then my folks went to Storm King and saw his wall. And she lost it. Then she went to the National Gallery and saw him working on Roof, and saw Rivers and Tides, and now I suspect she would deny there was ever a time she wasn't on Team Goldsworthy, never ever.
And here he is giving a lecture on Roof. He's just so calm and magical and subtly funny. Also at this link I can recommend Wayne Thiebaud and on tomorrow's listening schedule is definitely Jeanne-Claude and Christo. I just adore them (RIP Jeanne Claude), and hope to go see Over the River in 2013. I was at the Gates and it was phenomenal- all that orange in the middle of bitter NY winter. Another really slow documentary recommendation that I can't watch too many times- Running Fence.
