and so is life

i was listening to fred frith's soundtrack to the incredible documentary on british artist andy goldsworthy entitled "rivers and tides" this morning and i thought i'd revisit the dvd. it leaves me breathless when i see what he creates and i know that andy is a famous and influential man but he's a man all the same. to think of what he thinks and to create what he creates - well of course he needed frith to create the music for this work!!!!!

here's a piece that - like much of andy's work - involves time. time to gather and assemble the materials into a form and then to watch the form reassemble, dissemble, or disperse as it returns however transmuted to the place from which it came.
