dark art van nes

Dutch multidisciplinary artist Daniël van Nes creates with video, installation art, and engraving among other mediums. His works involve industrial settings and complex engravings often times illuminated to achieve a unique 'machine noir' style. van Nes reflects on social and technological developments and how reality and identity play within these. His Selifable City project takes form in many materials and features dark lonely creatures in a world of their own.

“Sellfable City is a ‘Machine Noir’ world, that thrives on the energy of its inhabitants. Like an ink stain, it slowly creeps into our world. Eating our data. Feeding on life and emotions.”
