Beast Box - modular percussive drum synthesizer, a real time drum machine.
Daniel Martin (b.1982, Netherlands)
After having left the computer graphics industry in 2013, Leiden based artist Daniel Martin fully committed himself to his art. He attended several art fairs with great success. Being spotted by media as the emerging artist on those fairs his work was shown and talked about on television, radio, various publications and was elected artist of the month in which he was preceded by other prominent dutch artists. Daniel is now preparing for his first big solo show in September. Daniel Martin’s most recent work comprises explicit portraits of defiled faces, and the images have an unsettling expression. It feels like the portraits were deliberately damaged after the painting was completed. This consciously cultivated spontaneity in painting is intrinsic to Martin’s work. A misshapen tree, that imperfection of beauty, is a source of inspiration to Daniel Martin. A ratio affected by chaos. That violation of appearance is anonymous and sidelines the individual’s identity and character, and it makes the faces dissolve or return in nature’s chaos.

I can’t believe these things are real. I thought it was a hoax when I saw the photos, but wow. Indonesian black chickens. The most terrifying/interesting thing about them is that even their internal organs are black. Every inch inside, and out, is black.
