As a good part of the US is getting blasted by some seriously frigid air this week, it only seems appropriate to take in some art pieces inspired by Mother Nature’s wintery capabilities. From snow canvases to ice soundscapes, read on for some stunning — albeit temporary — work inspired by temperatures under 32 degrees.
Jim Denevan’s mission: to create the world’s largest work of art on the world’s largest lake. And what happens when that lake happens to be in Siberia? A resulting nine square miles of art chiseled into pure ice, undertaken by Denevan’s adventurous team in sub-zero temperatures and intense winds.
The piece, which was commissioned by Anthropologie art magazine offshoot The Anthropologist, was based off the mathematical Fibonnaci sequence. A documentary is being made about the project. Watch the trailer here.
