This is PART TWO of the Andy Goldsworthy Art Project. It’s time for an art project! You all have (or should have) submitted an Andy Goldsworthy image to the Mandatory Discussion board. Please use this discussion board as a resource for getting a good idea about what Andy’s work is like. Your project will entail creating your very own masterpiece in a manner that honors his work. Please keep these loose instructions in mind: 1) Your photograph of the work will be what determines your grade. While Andy’s work is three dimensional, the images are what make it to the gallery and are judged according to the composition of the 2-dimensional work, not the sculpture itself. Make sure you take the time to compose your photograph well. I would advise taking many photos at different times (or specific times that work well with your project) of the day. Orient the landscape and direction of the sun to the best effect. 2) Take a safe walk to natural areas and look for various items that could be used to compose your work. You may have noticed that a lot of Goldsworthy’s work consists of many carefully selected leaves, stones, ice, or branches that are used in conjunction with the natural setting. Allow yourself to see all of the components of nature as elements of your design. How will you use the principles to create your work? If you are in an urban situation where you can not safely find a natural area, take a walk through the items found in your home. Allow yourself to use fresh eyes, to see everything in your home as elements of design. See things as color or texture, see the shapes, how can you orient them to create something new? 3) Use your sketchbook or find some paper and work out how you can use the elements and principles of design with the individual items you have found to create a stunning work of art. Consider what else will appear in the photo, what kind of landscape, how will you use the orientation of that landscape, where is the sun, is it close up or panoramic? If you are quarantined in an apartment, what parts of your space can be integrated into your work? 4) Go back to the site that you have chosen. How will you use the landscape to best effect? You have an idea of what you would like to do. Is everything you need to create it available? How is the lighting? Is the lighting more significantly dramatic at noon? Morning? Dawn? Sunset? Under a full moon at night? 5) Go back to your sketchbook. Work out how you will construct your masterpiece with the new information you have gathered. 6) DO NOT COPY GOLDSWORTHY”S WORK! Make an original work inspired by Andy. 7) I have seen a LOT of spirals over the years I have given this project. Do not make a spiral UNLESS you come up with a version of a spiral that is absolutely spectacular. A spiral will start with a D grade and work it’s way up. 8) Think like an artist. 9) Build your finished project. Repeat steps as necessary to make the best work. Take your time and make changes that will make the work more interesting or dynamic. Pay attention to how light affects the work. Do shadows improve or distract? 10) Document your work. Photograph the sculpture/earthwork/installation to show off the piece at it’s best. Embed that image to this discussion.
