On the 9th of June 2009 art magazine Mr.Motley (http://www.mistermotley.nl/) presented a new issue, dedicated to Folk Art. Several contributors were asked to submit a 10-minute presentation connected to the Folk Art theme. I presented a self-running slide show on three large interconnected screens. I chose to highlight the exceptional research by Danzig Baldaev, a police investigator and prison warden who collected thousands of Russian criminal tattoos in the course of forty years. The slide show was accompanied by a Vivaldi aria from his opera La Fida Ninfa.
