Daito Manabe Turns His Assistant Into a Human Drumkit


The human body is a conductor of electricity—a fact exploited by touch screens and, now, a novel way of generating music.

Daito Manabe has a history of conducting quirky, painful experiments in which he administers shocks to the human body — usually his own — powerful enough to cause involuntary muscle contractions. He uses electricity, music, computers and video to expand on what were literally the earliest scientific experiments ever to be recorded photographically — the electrical shocks to the face of Parisians administered in the 19th century by Guillaume Duchenne.

Mutant Sheep Born With Human Face


An Abomination of Nature or a Mutation Caused by Blind Industrialization?

A sheep gave birth to a dead lamb with a human-like face. The lamb was born in a village not far from the city of Izmir, Turkey.
