He walked in the snow for hours. The result? An astonishing work of art

Watch the video where Simon Beck creates his stunning mathematical drawings, using only snowshoes and a compass.

Snow is a fantastic resource for Norway. It literally lays the foundation for activities, play and coziness, and is an inherent part of our way of life.

But can snow also be used to create groundbreaking works of art?

The mildly eccentric Simon Beck studied engineering at Oxford university, and for the last few years, making advanced patterns in the snow has been his main occupation.

Recently, he was invited to Stryn in Western Norway, where he was followed by a film team. The result in an incredibly impressive movie, lasting six minutes, which we recommend wholeheartedly. See it here:


- I’m very glad that I’ve come across something that haven’t been done before, that other people think of as valuable. Now I’m feeling that I’m doing something worthwhile, I’m not just a lunatic making strange patterns, Beck says in the video.

The video featuring Beck is part of a series made by the Norwegian production company Flash studio. A musician and designer duo were also given free reigns to perform their art based on inspiration from Stryn.

The videos will be published on the Vimeo account for #inspirasjonstryn during the next couple of weeks.
