We conclude with part 2 of the Andy Goldsworthy feature, and also look at Scottish practitioners Dalziel and Scullion, and the groundbreaking Through the Surface exhibition with Japanese textile sculptor; Machiko Agano and Anniken Amundsen.

Julian Bell reviews the Mind in the Cave, on Paleolithic art and consciousness speculation.  Elsewhere Michael Tucker writes on crystal silence musician Jan Garbarek, George Dyson’s dual life as kayak builder and electronic intelligence historian is investigated, and Kate Fletcher considers the Ecology of Clothing.
