Natural or Ephemeral Art
Ephemeral art is made using the natural materials around you to create something that, once made, cannot be taken with you. The best way to ‘keep’ it is by photographing it. The most famous artist in this field is Andy Goldsworthy – have a look at his work for inspiration. Use sticks, leaves, nuts, seeds, stones – whatever you can find in your environment. Will it be a picture or something completely abstract….? Will you leave it once created for others to admire or will you scatter and return all those lose parts as though you have never been there? Always think about the environmental impact of what you pick/move.
