What has the power?
The idea inspired by Andy Goldsworthy's work about energy, flow and transformation is something specific to each individual person. Andy Goldsworthy speaks with his work through the natural element. This natural element is something that is felt by him and no other quite the same. The idea of the natural element is profoundly influential on an individual. Andy Goldsworthy feels such a connection working with fundamental pieces of the land. He feels the energy within those peices. That energy, when harnessed, will be able to move about, from Andy Goldsworthy's perspective, on a curving line. I have concluded, after long contemplation, that this energy gained from your "natural element" will then be circumvented into flow. This flow is the movement of that energy. Without flow, the energy would be built up in the certain location of the natural element, leading to quite pleasant fields, but nonetheless, unhelpful to society. The idea of helping society is what brings me to my last point about transformation. The energy of your natural element when put into flow can ultimately encourage and sometimes even force feelings, emotions, and actions upon you. These actions can be normal or the unknown. These actions are then what begin to define you. The natural element doesn't change you, it proclaims you. Realization and misunderstanding both can lead you into new subjects and ideas that are usually feasible though the understanding of the energy and what it can be done with it. The picture is my attempt to find what could be your natural element. Something that helps define you, something that is special and meaningful to you. One love.
In covering the topic of energy, flow and the transformation through the city; you must find something specific to the city. Are we in dire need of anything? Are we in need of something to leave? Different topics could be discussed about what would be best for a city. Recently, questions about governmental debates in the media on what America needs have been filling our minds information. If enough people are drawn to change, it could become their natural element. This idea of caucuses and rallies to build support and energy will then be flowed into the polls. If the energy is strong enough , it will lead to a new official, and a new city. A transformation of the city.
