The east coast may not be getting much snow, but Sonja Hinrichsen, a land artist and photographer, has been putting what snow has fallen in the west to good use, creating a massive drawing stomped into the drifts at Rabbit Ear Pass, Steamboat Springs, Colorado. An installation reminiscent of Andy Goldsworthy’s land art or even Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, Snow Drawings creates a temporary landscape with a sense of movement.
According to Colossal, an art and design blog, five volunteers helped Hinrichsen set her looping, intricate spirals, which seem to incorporate the area’s trees, into the ground cover.
An additional video was produced by Cedar Beauregard using a camera mounted on a remote-controlled helicopter.
