Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue: Home
These pages make accessible a sample of entries from the Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue DVD (Volume One: 1976-1986). The Digital Catalogue DVD can be accessed, by appointment, at the University of Glasgow, Crichton Campus, Dumfries. The Digital Catalogue documents, visually and textually, the first ten years of Andy Goldsworthy's ephemeral, outdoor practice. It replicates Goldsworthy's Slide Cabinet Index, and includes previously unpublished material from Goldsworthy's Sketchbook Diaries. The Digital Catalogue project was initiated by the University of Glasgow at the Crichton Campus, Dumfries, and was supported by the University's Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII). It was realised with funding from The Crichton Foundation, Dumfries, and from Private Donors in Dumfries & Galloway.

Linn Olofsdotter She was born in Sweden, worked in Brazil and is now settled in the Portland area. The prolific illustrator and mixed-media artist Linn Olofsdotter is a global citizen of the most interesting kind. Her own life in different locales gives her many sources of inspiration and most likely helps her flex her illustration muscle to meet the needs of a vast variety of clients. Her work has appeared in Computer Arts and Bon Magazine; she’s created T-shirt graphics for Levi’s, wall murals for a hotel in Los Angeles, CD covers for artists and illustrations for Oilily and La Perla. Nearly all of her work has a collage-like feel, with many layers, nuances and media. The somewhat surreal and psychedelic look of some of her pieces attests to her ability and willingness to trot not just the globe but regions beyond. - Tuija Seipell

Electrifying Photography Robert Buelteman uses high voltage photography Forget the notion of a reverent nature photographer tiptoeing through the woods, camera slung over one shoulder, patiently looking for perfect light. Robert Buelteman works indoors in total darkness, forsaking cameras, lenses, and computers for jumper cables, fiber optics, and 80,000 volts of electricity.

Joseph Beuys West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th AvenuesNew York City. Introduction 7000 Oaks by Lynne Cooke with statements by Joseph Beuys I believe that planting these oaks is necessary not only in biospheric terms, that is to say, in the context of matter and ecology, but in that it will raise ecological consciousness-raise it increasingly, in the course of the years to come, because we shall never stop planting.1 Morton Bartlett In 1993, Marion Harris, a New York art and antiques dealer, made the discovery of her life: In a booth at the Pier Show, a major antiques fair in New York, she came upon a collection of dolls and doll parts in boxes, along with stacks of old photographs. The material had been removed from a townhouse in Boston’s South End after the death of its elderly owner, a man named Morton Bartlett. Acting on instinct, she bought everything, and when she got it all home she found that what she’d purchased was a group of 15 exquisitely realistic, half-life-size dolls carefully wrapped in old newspapers and stored in custom-made wooden boxes. Three of them represented a boy of about 8 years old, and the rest were figures of girls between the ages of 8 and 16.

Louis Kahn From 1957 until his death, he was a professor of architecture at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania. Kahn created a style that was monumental and monolithic; his heavy buildings do not hide their weight, their materials, or the way they are assembled. Louis Kahn's works are considered as monumental beyond modernism. Famous for his meticulously built works, his provocative unbuilt proposals, and his teaching, Kahn was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century.
