Organ explores how destructive acts can be beautiful art practices. Dahlman's aim was to create a work built around contrasts; the visual becomes progressively clearer and the destruction of the organ undoes itself in direct opposition with the audio, which is degraded by the artist using magnets.


Sean Dahlman is a musician living in Boise Idaho. Focusing on classical compositions and experimental videos. He started experimenting with slow motion destruction three years ago with a gopro, a lot of guns, and gasoline. Since then, he has moved towards a more human touch, experimenting with dance and the human form.
