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

This performance took place at an abandoned poultry facility. 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. The box, visually reminscent of the on-site poultry houses, also contained a set of speakers that played a loop of baby chicks 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.
