Site-specific performance
UGA Poultry Genetics Laboratory, Athens, Georgia

This performance took place at an abandoned poultry genetics laboratory. The actor used a cast-iron paper cutter to methodically chop squares off a roll of single-square graph paper, which spooled out of a box eighty feet away. Also inside the box, a set of speakers played a loop of baby chickens chirping. The chicken sounds and the heavy whack of the cast-iron paper cutter combined to create an aural impression of the facility's past activity.
