TEDxQueenstown Marcus Winter

Using a light box as a canvas Marcus Winter manipulates millions of grains of sand for a living. Winter’s extraordinary ability to tell a narrative through the seemingly simple movement of grain is enchanting. His dexterity allows him to conjure evocative images in seconds before they’re dashed aside ready for the next evocative representation.

Winter is a graceful storyteller whose work spans multiple disciplines for numerous clients such as Saatchi & Saatchi and NZ Maori Tourism. Winter developed the performance side of his work at Otara Fleamarket using spray cans on cardboard, later training in Bogata, Columbia using Indian ink as a medium before transitioning to sand. Not only has Winter taken his craft from the streets to the stage but also to international audiences onboard some of the worlds largest cruise ships!
