Incredible Geometric Snow Art

When I’m 54, I want to be Simon Beck. Just look at these intense geometrical designs. Can you believe these were created by hand, or rather, by snowshoe footprints? Beck has been making these pieces of land art since 2004 by trampling around freshly fallen snow at the French Les Arcs ski resort. It reminds me a bit of Jim Denevan’s art, only it’s done by just one man — no art elf helpers. Sometimes it takes six hours of very deliberate, pre-planned walking. Sometimes it takes two days. Also, did I mention he’s 54? You go, Simon! You go… in a precise snowflake pattern. Spotted by Colossal, check out his freshest work in our slideshow, and see even more on his Facebook page.
