Simon Beck’s Snow Art

Artist Simon Beck creates these amazing pieces of snow art by walking in the snow wearing raquettes (snowshoes).

When asked a couple of questions by nowthatsnifty, he says:
Q: How long does it take you?
A: “Typically a large design is the size of 3 soccer fields and takes 2 days. In this context a day means until I get too tired to continue, how long this takes is mainly a function of the snow condition and how tired I was before I started. Usually between 5 and 9 hours.”

Q: What inspires you?
A: “Most of the designs are simple geometric figures, or figures generated by repeating simple rules at different scales. In due course of time I hope to harvest pictures others have taken on these things during the process of making them, to demonstrated how it is done.”
