    phing them. [/color][/font] fyodor_fish fyodor_fish ½March 25, 2014 [I]Andy Goldsworthy ? Rivers and Tides: Working with Time[/I], winner of the Golden Gate Award, Grand Prize For Best Documentary at the 2003 San Francisco International Film Festival, follows Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy engaging in the creation of ephemeral sculptures from natural, preexisting materials in England, Scotland, Japan, Australia, North America, and even the North Pole. For Goldsworthy, art isn't static, frozen in time, but instead, dictated by changing weather and light patterns, and most importantly, the passage of time.

    The “environmental sculptor”, Andy Goldsworthy, was born in 1956 in England and began his work in the 1970’s (Hurley). He works closely with an environment and uses only the materials available there to create his art. To document his work, he takes photographs before the sculpture is transformed by natural processes such as wind or water.

Some modern artists have the ability to connect the wonders of shape and form with the ever present backdrop of Mother Nature. Stacy Levy and Andy Goldsworthy represent just such artists, as both connect an understanding of science…

    similar views. Metamorphosis by Kafka, the Metamorphosis graphic novel by Kuper, and the short film Rivers and Tides narrated by Goldsworthy all mostly demonstrated negative changes.

    In diverse manners, artists often successfully reflect, and display the impact and relationship humans have with the environment.

    Andy Warhol, an American artist who painted post-World War II, once said, “Everybody has their own America, and then they have the pieces of a fantasy America that they think is out there but they can 't see” (“Sunbeams: Issue 447”). The American Dream incorporates this sense of imagination and hope: it creates motivation to fully commit one’s time and effort in order to accomplish his or her ambitions. Warhol, however, warns people that aspirations requiring hard work can evolve into…
