Summary

Andy Goldsworthy is a sculptor that creates site specific art that converses with natural environments. I designed an artist book that is reminiscent of Goldsworthy's use of negative space, a common theme throughout his work.  I wanted to embrace the tension of nothingness, Goldsworthy's bold color palette, and the importance of time.

Because I treated the body text as image, I wanted to unify the type using a Root 2 and baseline grid throughout the book. The composition is restrained yet playful, hinting to Goldsworthy's practice.
I focused on the visual language of the artwork, so each section of the gallery is divided by the shapes Goldsworthy creates, instead of text.
