Ephemeral Snow Art by Simon Beck

  • Posted by SHFT on December 29, 2012 in Art
  • Simon Beck dons snowshoes before walking around in freshly falled snow to create these massive, ephemeral art installations. The British artist, whose  work spotted on Colossal, has been making the installations since 2004:

    Each work takes the 54-year-old artist anywhere between 6 hours and two days to complete, an impressive physical feat aided from years of competitive orienteering. The orienteering also helps him in the precise mapping process which often begins on a computer before he’s able to mark landmarks in the snow that guide his precise walking patterns. 

    Above are some of Beck's latest creations, all made over the last month in Les Arcs, France. Check out lots more on Beck's Facebook page
