What’s Andy Goldsworthy up to?

Found out that Mr. Goldsworthy has some new installations, and a couple on new shows going on. Here’s the lowdown.

A new Goldsworthy

[Immediately tell it’s a Goldsworthy.]

I thought this little nugget was quite interesting;

For many people, Goldsworthy’s works with blood and excrement are disturbing. But the artist says he is only trying to reflect nature in all its facets. “Things like blood and urine are difficult things to work with, in that I don’t want to be gratuitously shocking,” Goldsworthy says. “But in the landscape and on farms you can’t go far without coming across something that is shitty, bloody or dead.”

What a guy.

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.
