Land Art

Simon Beck 4

We are having the best blizzard today – it’s those big, juicy flakes that are just perfect for snowball fights.  Oddly NYers don’t exactly appreciate being pelted in the face by wide-eyed strangers.  I have to admit, I do go a little bit foamy around the mouth when it snows.

Walking to work was a bit of a challenge sans snow shoes, but it did make me think of snow artist Simon Beck who creates these elaborate patterns in the snow in France.

The “land art” movement started in the 60s and gives artists a way to interact with nature while also being a pretty convenient cover for smoking pot in the woods.

I particularly love the snowball installation that seems to capture snowballs in flight by Cornelia Konrads – check it out with others …AFTER THE JUMP!
