Machetes, Drills, and Spaghetti: Norwegian …

“The Mind’s Eye” is a new series from VICE in which we chronicle the creative process of a unique creator, artist, or craftsperson as they produce an original work. The result is a hybrid between a strangely-satisfying look into the technical processes of modern art, but also a portrait of the world’s leading creators, their lives, and their inspiration.

Jan Erichsen is a performance artist from Norway who has amassed hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers with his “Destruction Diaries” series – a consistently unique & eccentric stream of videos in which he interacts with his own homemade contraptions & installations, ultimately facilitating their ruin.

In the second episode of “The Mind’s Eye”, we’ll follow Jan as he pioneers the world of performance art by bringing destruction to some of his favorite works.
