Andy Goldsworthy

Earthworks Artist

Rationale and Overview

This unit on Andy Goldsworthy is designed for High School aged students. While
studying Andy Goldsworthy’s work students will learn:

criticism lesson – how we are all connected to the ecology of the planet

history lesson – how art reflects time, place, and culture in which it is created

aesthetics lesson – what kind of aesthetic Goldsworthy’s work evokes

production lesson – how constructing a pinhole camera reflects ideas of production and
consumption and how the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy shows symbols of the natural
environment.

Earthwork art

Earth art (also called "land art") refers to a movement of artists with wide ranging goals,
but all created in nature, employing such materials as stones, dirt, and leaves.
"Earthworks" is the same movement. Most works are sculptural. Earthworks often refer
to phenomena such as the slow process of erosion or to the movement of planets or stars,
especially the sun. Many earthworks are intended to help us to better understand nature.
Some demonstrate the inherent differences between nature and civilization often pointing
out artists' desires to understand, conquer, and control natural processes.

During the late 1960s and early 1970s art began to move outdoors from galleries. Some
earthworks have been small enough to be gallery pieces, but many involve huge land
masses, as did Michael Heizer's Nine Nevada Depressions, 1968: big, curved and
zigzagging trenches, like abstract doodles on the earth, placed intermittently over a span
of 520 miles. Another example is the 1970 piece by Robert Smithson (American, 1938-
1973) titled Spiral Jetty, which extended 1500 feet into the Great Salt Lake, though today
it can be witnessed only through documentation.

Criticis m

Students will view a power point presentation of The Wall, Stonewood, Dumfriesshire"
by Andy Goldsworthy. Then they will actively participate in small group discussions to
thoughtfully describe, analyze, interpret, and judge the work and use supporting evidence
from the group discussions to write an effective point-of-view essay that incorporates
how we are all connected to the ecology of the planet.



                                                                                          3
History

The history lesson will involve the students researching Andy Golds worthy’s Cairn, Storm King
Wall, Two Oak Stacks, and Stone Houses, and ot her eart h artists, Joseph Beuys 7000 Eichen,
Walter De Maria The NY Earth Room, Dennis Oppenheim Salt Flat, Robert Smithson Spiral Jetty,
James Turrell Roder Crafer, and Richard Long A line made by Walk ing, art movements
happening at the same time as Golds wort hy’s work, and historical events that happened during
the time Golds worthy was making his work. Then they will use accurate conventions of res earch
writing to write a report (at least two pages) that ties all their research toget her in an organized
fashion to explain how Goldsworthy’s work reflects the time, place, and culture in which it is
made.

Aesthetics

The students will learn how we all respond to aesthetic by thoughtfully writing a personal
definition of art and after attentively viewing Andy Goldworthy’s video Rivers and Tides,
conscientiously apply and revise personal definitions of art.

Production

Students will learn about ideas of production and consumption and how we all develop symbols in
the production lesson. First they will view a demonstration of how to make a pinhole camera and
then following specific instructions carefully construct a pinhole camera. Then after studying
Andy Golds wort hy’s work, Snow Stack s, Balanced Stick s, Vue d’ Exposition, Hazel Tree
Smeared wit h Black Earth and White Chalk , Elm Branches and Mud, Raining, Elm Sticks Joined
with Mud, Torn Lines through Elm Leaves, Roof, Line, Flam, Finished, Brok en Pavers Leftover,
using obs ervation skills find a place or object in nature that resembles a piec e of art and take a
picture of it with the pinhole camera..

About the artist

Andy Goldsworthy is an environmental sculptor in which he uses his natural
surroundings to create an art form. Andy Goldsworthy was born in 1956 in Chesire. He
studied at Bradford Art College and Preston Polytechnic. He has toured the world and
experimented with the world's alternating climate and different geographical materials
available. In 1986, he moved to Dumfriesshire, Scotland where he maintains his
residency.

Goldsworthy works directly with nature in which he uses a variety of materials including
leaves, twigs, flower petals, pinecones, sand, snow and stone. His work addresses issues
of growth and decay, seasonal cycles; and the idea that an artwork too has a natural life
that eventually must end. When he uses instruments at all, they are equally ‘found’
instruments: the stick with which he scrapes the sand, the thorns with which he sticks the
leaves together. More often, he lets nature work on its own, without the intervention of
any instrument: as when he lets icicles freeze together or lets his clay dry in the sun.
Sometimes the processing is negative: as when man- made structures of sand are
dismantled through the tide, or when a snowball collapses when melting, or when the
clay enveloping boulders bursts during the process of drying.

 Andy Golsdworthy’s compositions are minimal . He replaces the chaos of leaves in the
forest or pebbles on the beach with a progression from one colour to another, from light


                                                                                                    4
to dark, from big to small or sticks fallen at random on the ground with a circle, or a line.
"At its most successful, my 'touch' looks into the heart of nature; most days I don't even
get close. These things are all part of a transient process that I cannot understand unless
my touch is also transient-only in this way can the cycle remain unbroken and the process
be complete."

Goldsworthy uses the photograph as a form of documentation to capture the essence of
his work. "Each work grows, stays, decays- integral parts of a cycle which the
photograph shows at its height, marking the moment when the work is most a live. There
is an intensity about a work at its peak that I hope is expressed in the image. Process and
decay are implicit."

Enduring Concept

We are all connected to the ecology of the planet – we all develop and respond to symbols

Key Concepts to Consider

        Many earthworks are intended to help us to better understand nature. Goldsworthy’s
work addresses issues of growt h and decay, seasonal cycles; and the idea that an art work too
has a natural life that event ually must end.

Unit Overview

    -   Students will use evidence from group discussions to write an effective point -of-view
        essay that incorporates how we are all connected to the ecology of the planet

    -   Students will effectively write a report based upon their research illustrating how art
        reflects time, place, and culture in whic h it is created

    -   Students will conscientiously apply and revise personal definitions of art

    -   Students will construct a pinhole camera and use their observational skills to take a
        picture of a place or object in nature that resembles a piece of art

Essential Questions

-   How does Andy Golds wort hy’s work reflect the time, place, and culture in which it is made?


Essential Concepts

Earth art (also called "land art") refers to a movement of artists with wide ranging goals, but all
created in nature, employing such mat erials as stones, dirt, and leaves. "Earthworks" is the same
movement. More often, Andy Goldsworthy lets nature work on its own, without the int ervention of
any instrument: as when he lets icicles freeze together or lets his clay dry in the sun. Sometimes
the processing is negative: as when man-made structures of sand are dismantled through the
tide, or when a snowball collapses when melting, or when the clay enveloping boulders bursts
during the process of drying.

                        Dumfriesshire, by Andy Goldsworthy.
                         Explaining that the definition of art is something artificial or manmade,
                        where as the definition of nature is the physical world independent of
                        human intervention. Then explain that ecology is the study of organisms
                        in their natural environment. With this in mind use the critiquing process
                        to describe how Golds wort hy’s work The Wall, Stonewood,
                        Dumfriesshire,is connected to the ecology of the planet.

Acti vities/Sequence    1. Introduce the lesson “The ecology of Earth Art” by having the students
                        listen to the explanation of art, nature, and ecology
                        2. Pass out art critiquing handouts that define each step of critiquing
                        3. Place students in groups of three or four
                        4. Pass out paper and pencils to all students
                        5. Show the students the power point present ation of The Wall,

                        6. Now have the students elect one recorder for each group
                        7. Encourage each group to form a discussion around the four parts of
                        the critique of Goldsworthy’s work and have the recorder writ e down



                                                                                                 9
                          notes
                          8. Then ask the groups to organize the notes by telling the recorder
                          what revisions need to occur
                          9. Now have everyone in the groups write an individual critique using
                          their groups notes
                          10. Post the critiques up in the room
