It Looks Like A Crazy Guy Just Walking Around In The Snow. Then You Zoom Out And.. Whoa.
DECEMBER 23, 2013
It's possible you've never heard of Simon Beck, but after today, you won't be able to forget him or his wintry works of art. Simon is an artist and is most well-known for making incredibly delicate and detailed art in the snow, just by walking over a fresh snowfall. He literally walks miles in the snow to create these pieces. And the part that blows our minds? He could spend hours upon hours creating one design, just to have it be covered by snowfall or blown away by the next day. But he still makes them.
Simon walks over layers of fresh snow in special shoes to create his mind-boggling art.
He can easily walk for miles just to create one design.
But the results are worth all of the effort. In fact, they are mesmerizing.
The most interesting thing about this art, though, is Simon creates it knowing it could be gone the very next day.
These delicate patterns were created in the beautiful Savoie Valley in France, overlooking Mont Blanc.
Simon found spaces in between lodges and mountains at the Les Arcs ski resort to create his masterpieces.
He creates large, mathematical patterns that have different effects when viewed from different angles.
At different times during the day, his creations will look different.
It's just hard to believe that he spends countless hours making these...
Only to know that they will be gone from this world within a matter of hours or days.
