Simon's sense of snow

Simon's sense of snow

On the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, artist Simon Beck walks all day in raquettes (snowshoes) to make elaborate geometric patterns in the snow. He maps his creations using only a sighting compass and sometimes a length of string, and is always at the mercy of the weather -- he redesigns or discontinues patterns as new snow falls. According to Simon, his snow art began as a method of exercise, compelling him to walk for up to nine hours at a stretch.

Also worth a look is the art of Sonja Hinrichsen, who recruits volunteers to make large-scale snow drawings in the United States.
