Gone with the Wind

One of my friends sent me a link to a news story about Simon Beck's snowflake artwork drawn in snow with snowshoes. I immediately became a fan, and I learned about another artist who attempted to create the largest ice installation on earth in Siberia. His masterpiece literally was blown away in what was deemed a Devil Wind. DVDs of the work disappeared as quickly as the icy crop circles, darn it. This is one video I would have cherished.

  5. Oh my word. That snowshoe art is beyond praise.

    And the Siberian video - what an amazing feat, and how sickening to have it blow away.

  6. I have no words but an intake of breath..a great huge breath that holds and holds and then leaves with each heartbeat.
