Andy Goldsworthy uses natural materials for his sculptures
A British sculptor has chosen Alderney as the site of his latest artwork.
Andy Goldsworthy is planning to produce a work using 4 to 5ft (1.2 to 1.5m) "stones" made from objects embedded in hard-packed earth.
The project is part of Guernsey's International Artist in Residence programme, which plans to link an artist to each island in the Bailiwick.
Mr Goldsworthy said he had chosen Alderney because the island seemed to have a "strong sense of layered past".
Mr Goldsworthy, whose sculptures use natural materials and are rooted in the landscape in which they are installed, said: "The stones would need to be made indoors and left to dry for a year before being placed on site.
"They would then be sited at various locations around the island and left.
"It would be a project that reveals itself over time through the process of erosion, which I hope would be relevant to a small island."
He plans to embed rocks, branches, bones, tools, seeds, clothes and "beach debris" inside the earthern stones.
