Albright-Knox staff creates human version of 'Path'

A few weeks ago, I wrote about Andy Goldsworthy's new and controversial commission for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The winding path, which only becomes visible under the perfect confluence of atmospheric conditions, is surely the most temperamental and unpredictable piece of art in the gallery's collection. For the gallery's annual "Art Alive" competition, in which teams create tableaux of artworks from the gallery's collection, members of the Albright-Knox education department decided to produce a human version of Goldsworthy's "Path." Here's what they came up with:

The gallery, according to this post on its Tumblr page, is launching a new summerlong photo-sharing campaign based on Goldsworthy's work at the gallery and elsewhere. "We encourage you to walk the Path, create your own Rain Shadow, make something out of sticks or leaves, or get creative with nature in other ways," the gallery writes. "Please share the photos of your observations or creations on Instagram or Tumblr and include #akgoldsworthy and @albrightknox in your captions."
