24-year-old performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'Now I am Death the Destroyer of Worlds - 2' in Gele Zaal, Nonnemeersstraat 26, Gent, Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium.

This time I lay upside down in the grave with a chain attached to my feet. I was pulled out of the grave while films and slides about Robert Oppenheimer and death were projected onto me. In a microphone I repeated: “Now I am death the destroyer of worlds”. The sound of my voice was electronically distorted into an unearthly grinding and thundering by Paul Hurst.
