Artist Andy Goldsworthy creates the most temporary of artwork. Fashioning sculptures out of icicles, using the surface of a pond for a canvas or delicately balancing a wall of rocks on a hillside, the organic impermanence of Goldsworthy's work is fundamental to its very essence. This fine 2001 documentary is as much about that impermanence as it is about the freezing hands focused on creating works that will likely be gone by noon. Though Goldsworthy doesn't allow himself to get entwined in unnecessary philosophical discourse about his work, his honest earthiness and dedication to craft imbues the film with a heartfelt high-mindedness that too often is missing from art documentaries. This two-DVD presentation is bursting with extras ' interviews, a photo gallery, a clutch of short films ' that lend even more perspective to director Thomas Riedelsheimer's original film. Most impressive is a new documentary about Goldsworthy's most audacious project: 13 giant snowballs Goldsworthy 'installedâ?� throughout London.
