Quilts in the Snow…

Man Walks All Day to Create Spectacular Snow Patterns

Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather!

Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art.

Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields!

The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels.

How long these magnificent geometric forms survive is completely dependent on the weather.

Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations.

‘The main reason for making them, he said, was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet,

so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise.

Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.’

Spectacular art for the sake of exercise!

Merci de nous rafraîchir ainsi, tout le monde n’aime pas la chaleur!
