What are Cairns? From middle Gaelic, the word means “mound of stones built as a memorial or landmark.” These artworks play a major role in my life. Cairns are constructed with no wires, adhesives, or supports. Using patience and balance are the major requirements to making nature’s work of art. Artists use this hobby to conquer a relaxed state of mind, and sculpting the towers manifest discipline.

Image result for andy goldsworthyCairns are commonly made all around the world by many famous artists including Andy Goldsworthy. Goldsworthy is a British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist who is known for creating artistic sites involving only the natural materials in his surroundings. These beautiful sculptures exhibit his personal moral expectation of finding the beauty in nature.  

Passion for making Cairns within my daily lifestyle definitely has a big impact on me personally. Working in the surroundings of nature, being in different environments, and having acknowledgment of how life has problems but they seem smaller are benefits I associate with making Cairns. In comparison to huge landmarks like mountains, oceans, and the environment, Cairns can bring a more immense perspective of yourself.
