Summary "Just after midnight on the 21st June 2000, thirteen huge snowballs were unloaded from refrigerated trucks. Concealed in the snowballs were materials mainly gathered around Goldsworthy's home in Dumfriesshire: elderberries, ears of barley, wool, crow feathers, sinuous beech branches, chalk, river pebbles and even rusting barbed wire and discarded fragments of agricultural machinery. Little by little, as the snowballs melted, these contents were revealed - a unque confrontation between the city and the landscapes of wilderness and agriculture."--BOOK JACKET
Notes "This text is based on a conversation between Andy Goldsworthy and Conrad Bodman, Curator at the Barbican Art Center, early June 2000"--p. 31
