Andy Goldsworthy's Passage focuses on the journeys that people, rivers, landscapes, and even stones take through space and time. A cairn made by the renowned sculptor in the Scottish village where he lives reveals the influence that his work close to home has on projects he creates elsewhere. A series involving elm trees, from glowing yellow leaves to dead branches, exemplifies his work's vigorous beauty as well as its association with death and decay.
The great projects of Michael Heizer, with their quest for titanic dimension, constitute the last manifestation of the adventure of Western Art. This book can be considered the first large monograph study of Heizer's oeuvre.
