Andy Goldsworthy in SF

There's a new Andy Goldsworthy sculpture in the Presidio of San Francisco. (Thanks to Patti Davidson for reminding me to go see it!) The cut-wood spire is surrounded by newly planted cedars that form a spiral around it, and which will eventually cause it to disappear from view. Kind of cool, I think. I like the ephemeral quality of the work, and the idea of turning the forest itself into sculpture. Plus, anything that replaces those eucalyptus trees with Western Red Cedars is fine by me...
