Goldsworthy's oeuvre is made entirely of natural materials such as leaves, wood, stone or snow, resulting mainly in site-specific installations linked to a certain place. The forms and structures he creates blend in with the landscape, striving to find a balance with their setting and the effects of light and atmosphere. The resulting work interacts with its surroundings, changing and growing as time goes by. This fleeting, variable essence drives him to photograph many of his works in order to record them and their evolution for posterity. The installation Goldsworthy prepared especially for the Crystal Palace is one of the artist's most ambitious wood dome projects so far, enlarging upon the vaulted spaces he used previously in London and Yorkshire. The form of the wooden structures blends in with the architecture of the palace which becomes its glass epidermis.
