"When I make an ephemeral work, when it's finished, that's the moment that it ends, in a way," says sculptor Andy Goldsworthy.
Goldsworthy is a Scottish sculptor, photographer and environmentalist who creates ephemeral pieces of artwork from natural elements such as - sticks, leaves, rocks, ice, mud, wind, rain, and the rising tide.
As he told Terry Gross in his Fresh Air interview in 2015: "It's not about art. It's just about life and the need to understand that a lot of things in life do not last."
Luckily for us, Goldsworthy captures his ephemeral works of art on film so a wider audience can appreciate and enjoy is all natural works of art.
