Andy Goldsworthy,
Cover &
Spreads

The challenge of this mandate was to create a visually appealing book cover that conveys the ideas and mindset of Andy Goldsworthy, who is one of the most well-known land artists. Goldsworthy leaves a lot of aspects of his work to chance, I recognized this and wanted to build off of it for this cover. The only problem I ran into with this project was creating a cover that represented the ideas of Goldsworthy, but in the end I believe I achieved this.
Challenge

The goal of this mandate was to develop an interactive iPad application that encompasses the work of (ANDY GOLDSWORTHY), the legendary land artist. The overall objective was to create an interesting e-book that would explore the work and world that Goldsworthy created. This mandate didn't contain many constraints, which let me explore many different possibilities. During my research, I found out that most of his preliminary artworks were created in a forest close to his childhood home in Leeds, England. Since he discovered his passion for land art in this location, it gave me an idea.

Perspective

The development of this cover was mostly done by hand, which was something quite enjoyable for me. Like I said before, the inspiration for this project was Goldsworthy's eye, since he had such a unique way of creating his work I took a different approach to the cover, doing it by hand and leaving things to chance, just as he would.

Outcome

Focusing on the aesthetics of this project, it has an ice cold feel, and that's not only because it's a big block of ice. It's shot in a way that highlights all the minute details within the ice. Shooting the typography in a brick of ice left a lot of things up to chance, I had no idea what was going to happen when I left it to freeze. This is the main reason I chose this process to create the visual.

this publication was part of a larger project where an interactive e-book was created, view
