Chrono shredder calendar
Time is but a fleeting thing, and if you ever need visualization of this, here's a calendar for you. The Chrono shredder shreds exactly one date page every 24 hours, shredding at a constant rate all day and night.
As the artist/designer SUSANNA HERTRICH writes on her site:
"The Chrono_Shredder is a device that makes past time tangible. It is a hybrid between calendar, clock and waste producing automaton. It has no on/off-button, thus it is unstoppable, just like time. It features the 365 days of the year represented on a paper-roll. The paper-roll is led through a hacked paper-shredder, which is programmed to use exactly 24 hours to shred one "day".
It will either insprire you to live life in the moment or you'll be depressed by time's progress. It brings to mind Groucho Marx's philosophical quote: Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
