Image Eye Candy

(made from heron feathers)

Amazing, don't you think? I first saw this artist's work when I was a Senior in HS and was struck by it then. Completely constructed using natural materials (often thorns, twigs, or ice as "glue"), native to whatever site, temporary and yet unforgettable. Just a sampling of Andy Goldworthy. If you like what you see, check out Jim Denevan, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, or google Earthworks or Land art. Eye candy, don't you agree? (I have to remind myself I'm supposed to be searching for 'quotable' text for my current paper, not spending hours devouring the amazing imagery!)
