Snofa 2011

by Scott on 02/21/2011

Here is our 2011 attempt at some form of interesting snow art.  This year’s installment incorporates a fun element of usefulness, providing a nice stopping point for the walkers and joggers that frequent the park adjacent to our home. With all the traditional benches completely covered with snow, the demand for a pleasant, restful waypoint went through the roof.

So, why not explore the irony presented by a bench completely made out of snow? Would people engage or would they just pass by?

Design considerations:

  • Dimensional accuracy
  • Comfort
  • Attention to detail

It was cool to see how people approached it.  Even the dogs enjoyed peeing on it… and once one does it, they all feel the urge.  The last two shots are exactly one week later after the temperature had warmed significantly.  Enjoy.

We made this guy a few years ago:
