20th Annual International Snow Sculpting Championship Results in Breckenridge, Colorado

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, February 10th, 2010 at 1:01pm.

Congratulations to all the snow sculpting teams at this year's event. The display of talent for this 20th year was truly spectacular. Breckenridge Associates Real Estate is very proud of our own Team Breck's snow art masterpiece, titled "String Theory". They, of course, were the big winners in our book! Our hats off to the competition and award-winners for another successful week in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Following are photos of the final "String Theory" and an explanation to the thought process behind the sculpture. Looking forward to seeing you again at next year's event!

String Theory - “Each of our souls is like the vibrating string of the violin; resonating from the most profound sub-atomic level to the celestial reaches beyond. Music is the portal that allows us to connect our spirit to the sublime, and to grasp our place in it.”

String theory is a new branch of physics. It is a theoretical description that has shown great promise in uniting our understanding of what happens at the sub-atomic level with what we believe to be true in the larger world of matter and energy. To date, the laws that appear to govern these two domains are irreconcilable, and obviously this cannot be correct. Finding a bridge between these two clearly interconnected realities has been the Holy Grail of physics for decades.

String Theory describes all matter and energy as being composed of tiny, vibrating “strings”, each with its unique resonance, or harmonic.
