Guerilla Creative Collective ‘Kut’ Brings Unexpected Weather to the Streets of Riga

August 29, 2012

Christopher Jobson

A Latvian group that goes by the name Kut who describes themselves as “a creative collective consisting of filmmakers, musicians, artists, politicians and cats,” recently undertook an action on the streets of Riga called “Oh Joy!” where the group brought nature to the city and made the weather change unexpectedly. Aside from the few “Oh dear god what is this stuff all over me” moments, it looks like most people enjoyed it quite a bit. Love the editing. (via vimeo)

Snow Drawings at Rabbit Ears Pass by Sonja Hinrichsen

February 21, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Step by step this massive snow drawing was trampled into freshly fallen snow by artist Sonja Hinrichsen with the help of 5 volunteers last month at Rabbit Ears Pass in Colorado. I love that a piece so expansive and yet so temporary can be created with a few pairs of well choreographed snow boots. If you like this, also check out the beach drawings of Jim Denevan. The photos above are by Cedar Beauregard and you can see many more here. (via reddit)

Update: It turns out Hinrichsen completed another piece just a week later. Check out the video below.

Update: Want even more snow drawing madness? Don’t miss the work of Simon Beck.

Un-Melt

In Chicago we’re about to cross the 50 degree mark for the first time in 30 years. Or at least it feels that way. This video by Tony Round shot for a Gizmodo video challenge seems like a good sendoff to a pretty nasty winter. I could watch spontaneous snow forming like this for hours. Beautiful.

Snow Typography

Oslo resident and designer Veronica Falsen Hiis settled down in a cozy snow drift to sculpt this great collection of icy type. The clarity of the letterforms is truly impressive despite the frozen medium. See also her type made from the edges of books. (via fastco)
