~ Andrew Goldsworthy ~ Stone River ~ 2002 ~

 

When the artist heard about Stanford University's "boneyard" -- a repository of salvaged historic materials including sandstone from buildings toppled in the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes -- he knew he'd found the right material for this work. "The idea of stone that was once a building returned to the ground, back into the earth, for a work that is about flow, movement and change, it was perfect. It was really perfect."
