Artist Creates Gigantic Winter Crop Circles Just by Walking in the Snow! While walking amidst white mountaintops and cozy ski lodges, Simon Beck creates enormous works of snow art that look like giant wintry crop circles. Believe it or not, the immense snow patterns are made entirely by foot - Beck creates them while he walks across the terrain in briquette snow shoes. The ephemeral art installations last only until the mountain winds blow them away across the valleys. Located in the beautiful valley of Savoie, France, Beck’s patterned snow circles decorate the expanses of the frozen lakes outside of the ski runs at Les Arcs ski resort. Overlooking Mont Blanc, the idyllic ski resort is a wonder of natural beauty – enhanced only by Beck’s designs. As each snow falls, sometimes daily, Beck designs and redesigns his incredible snow patterns over and over the same site.

news/news-5/ Azerbaijani artist Faig Ahmed is no stranger to fiber arts. Most of his works revolve around the construction and deconstruction of intricately patterned rugs and carpets. This three-dimensional installation straightforwardly titled Thread Installation deals with this similar concept of visualizing the breakdown of a complex design. Using the rectangular body of a typically Middle Eastern rug, Ahmed forms the contours of geometric patterns with thread, but two corners of the frame are left incomplete. These unfinished edges extend, in long pieces of thread, past the confines of the wall the rest of the work is affixed to as though the conceptual rug is unravelling. : Dinah Fried Fictitious Dishes Fictitious Dishes: An Album of Literature’s Most Memorable Meals is a book of 50 photographs of meals from literature—ranging from The Secret Garden to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, published by HarperCollins. >>>Order from Amazon, B & N, Books-a-million, Bookish or Indiebound<<< Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Oliver Twist The Bell Jar
