Andy Goldsworthy is a landscape artist working with the tension between timelessness and ephemerality. Quite apart from loving them in their own right, these books are a superb bridge and trigger for discussions with students about the nature of art. Response to Midsummer Snowballs, in particular, has spawned some amazing student projects for me. See also the Eyestorm website on Midsummer Snowballs
