FEATURED ARTIST: Rose Eken 

While working at punk music venues as a teenager in Copenhagen, Rose Eken developed a fascination with concert detritus. The objects she was made to clean up after an event—cigarette butts, drug paraphernalia, beer cans, discarded clothing, and lost cell phones—became emblems of punk rock culture, which she now reproduces in the form of hand-painted ceramic miniatures. Sculpting objects found in concert halls, kitchens, studios and similarly ubiquitous locations, Eken methodically replicates detritus often placing them very systematic in a grid, suggestive of scientific categorization. Her arrangements and sheer amount of production assume an anthropological quality, documenting and preserving the relics of a culture and celebrating a history in process. While Eken also produces embroideries, drawings, and sometimes even videos, she favors clay for its versatility and clumsy form, as shaping and firing warp the object along the way, resulting in unforeseen and unpredictable imperfections.

Rose Eken (b.1976, Denmark) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in London in 2003. She has received critical appraise in US for her solo exhibition Remain In The Light at The Hole gallery in New York as well as her more recent solo show Tableau at V1Gallery in Copenhagen, which was acquired by and is currently on display at Aros Museum of Modern Art in Aarhus, Denmark. Eken is represented by V1 Gallery, Copenhagen

… I’m sorry, but if you don’t think siamusic is one of the most evolutionary, boundary defying artists out there… we simply can’t be friends. She’s a goddess. She’s everything.

May I present to you : Jensen “I hate cats” Ackles and Misha “My true form is an *actual* cat” Collins. You’re welcome, Internet.

For interested parties: The ears came from this lovely vendor right here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PricelessCompanions . She’s awesome. 

Spent the last two hours making Thomas Sanders fans out of my older brother and my mom. It’s been a successful first weekend home from college.

I’ve gotta say, canon Danny is one of the most *relatively* well behaved 14 year olds I’ve ever seen. I mean, when I was that age, I distinctly remember most of my peers as children fresh out of middle school, loud, foul-mouthed with something to prove. Certainly, if one of them were suddenly given ghost powers and an alternate identity that theoretically, would not be linked back to their human persona, well.

So consider a dp au where human Danny is an emotionally repressed child with many frustrations (school, family, etc.) that makes the realization that as long as he’s smart about it, no one will ever make the connection between his ghostly alter ego and his human self. And eyyy, ghosts don’t have to listen to parents or worry about being grounded if you say some foul language yeah?

Cue Danny Phantom, the most foul mouthed entity the Ghost Zone has ever seen. The poor newscasters can’t even get a proper recording, at least one fit to air, without bleeping out every other word out of this foul mouthed phantom.

Danny has never felt more free or relaxed after a good fight and yelling session. Most of what he says are general swears, more for stress relief than to really hurt someone, but.. Ooohh boyy, it’s rare, but when it happens, when someone pushes him over the boiling point, the sheer vitriol he unleashes is rumored to cause actual burns (also consider the discovery/manifestation of the ghostly wail came about as the biggest FUCK YOU Danny has ever yelled).

(And of course, because no DP post of mine is ever complete without at least mentioning the fruitloop, Vlad is absolutely horrified by this child’s behavior. Danny gives no shits.)
