Familiar textured snowshoe tracks leave intricate, almost filigree shadows on a pristine slope in the French winter slopes. The pattern they leave evokes a mystery – who left these here? And invite the viewer to contemplate them amid the quiet winter’s day. Sometime in the last 48 hours, a lone snowshoer has been out since before sunrise, leaving tracks in the snow that remind one of crop circles, and just as massive, covering an area roughly the size of several football fields. There is no sign of the artist.
