Geometric Snow by Simon BeckJuxtapoz // Sunday, 11 Jan 2015
We are loving the geometric snow illustrations created by Simon Beck's larger than life process of walking across the snow in raquettes (snowshoes) for up to 10 hours at a time! Talking about his process, he says, 'Most of this activity takes place in the ski resort of Les Arcs, where I own an apartment and spend most of the winter. On average they take about 10 hours to really do it properly, some are a little unfinished, if my feet get cold or hurt too much. The setting out is done using handheld orienteering compass and distance determination using pace counting or measuring tape. Curves are either judged or arcs of circle using a clothes line attached to an anchor at the centre.
