Andy Goldsworthy

Goldsworthy has provided me with an additional outlook on my work; as an artist who uses the environment as his medium, he once said

'I can't edit the materials I work remit is to work with nature as a whole.' 
Nature Rainbow - Andy Goldsworthy

I want to try my hardest to maintain the art which is found in nature and translate it closely into a woven fabric.

David was a photographer I discovered recently and I was instantly fascinated but the stark contrast between manmade and nature. Why is there such a contrast? 

His work made me question whether it was possible to find a way to combine the striking elements found in both nature and architecture to create a fabric. 
Bosco Verticale

'Bosco Verticale' is a pair of residential towers situated in Milan, designed by Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra. The concept was to design a building which housed trees to help mitigate the smog and produce oxygen, whilst also eliminating the 'eyesore' image which buildings can often be labelled with.

This piece of architecture has helped prove to me that when combining nature with urban properties, the outcome can often be very beautiful.
