Bored Panda do it again! Great find on their excellent design blog. British engineer Simon Beck now spends his winters in Les Arcs, in France. There, he gets his exercise by donning snow shoes and treading out geometric designs he’s created on his computer.
I love this kind of because I can stuff. It’s inherently temporary, in that snow melts and can be covered over, or skied through. But it is such a commitment of time and energy… all an expression of internal drive and, I suppose, love of what you’re trying to achieve. When it’s done, if it ever truly is, then it has a limited time to be appreciated before it gets altered by the wind, or more snow, or other people.
There’s something intensely human about setting out on such a grand task with no real guarantee of success or lasting result. A little like love itself.
