Goldsworthy doesn’t focus too much on texture in his work. I like to view _dsc0124his work as almost organizing nature and turning it into something beautiful that nature itself isn’t capable of. I wanted to use opposing textures for this work and used chestnuts. One texture is spikey, the other is smooth. I organized the two opposing textures into opposite sides. I wanted to keep in mind a quote from Two Autumns“the most simple things can be the most profound.” My idea was simple in separating the textures, but I think it shows how contrary they are and how they have come from the same place but are still incredibly different. This idea is similar to how  Goldsworthy can make “connections and relationships between places in different parts of the world” because of his art.
