The transient nature of Andy Goldsworthy's art has always been attractive to me. All his creations are natural, using available natural materials - leaves, stones - and are purposely meant to evolve and eventually be destroyed since they are created outside and exposed to the elements. I find this approach to art and creation more and more attractive and HONEST. There is a translation to life and a philosophy for living as all things evolve and are eventually destroyed (or cease to exist). What a beautiful thing to embrace this and hold this up in high regard, rather, than say, egotistically create glossy monuments and other "art" pieces that last "forever", as if we are that important.
