Shred my being

2010
50 blades, metal structure, 20m of printed roll (180x300cm)

Shred my being is the cynical experience of an artwork destroying itself. As each word is ripped apart, the remaining ones bear a heavier meaning. The machine carries out its shredding process 1 second every 3 minutes and is then left on standby, suspending in time the tension of its destructive purpose.
