The Reserve Geologique in Digne, France, is a vast area set aside much like a National Park in the United States, except that small towns and villages are included within the Reserve's boundaries. An exhibition of Goldsworthy's work was mounted at the Museum of Digne in 1995, and in discussions with curator Nadine Gomez and Réserve director Guy Martini, the notion of Digne becoming a 'refuge' for an ever-growing collection of his work was advanced. "Behind the project is the idea of getting people to explore things on foot rather than from roads and cars. My work as ‘shelters’ and ‘refuges’ is tied to this idea of walking...The purpose of the walk is to link the cairns and the valleys by foot, but also to begin the story of a walk that will be written more deeply by each person who embarks upon it. In a broader sense, I feel it's important to shift emphasis away from the road and the car as the only means to explore the Réserve."-Goldsworthy. A CD-rom including an interview and a video of his work accompanies the book. Released last year, Midsummer Snowballs presents the diary of a number of massive snowballs that were trucked into London, each containing different interior ingredients that are revealed as they melt—one of Goldsworthy's more light-hearted projects.
