sculpture and installation > Shredder

I thought of this work one evening at dinner when my daughter asked how chicken salad was made. I went to our office, quickly cut a chicken shape out of paper, grabbed the paper shredder and brought it to the dinner table. I gave her the chicken and told her to put it in the shredder, which she did. "That's basically how chicken salad is made," I said, and immediately it popped into my head that it might be interesting to shred long, continuous sheets of paper.
