Exhibited as an interactive installation during "The Wasteland Pt. 1" at Goodspace gallery in 2020 and again at AIRspace gallery in 2021, participants were invited to press the FEED button on the machine and tear off a random snippet to take with them as a kind of record or 'receipt' of the exhibit.

 

Concerned with the abundance of paper receipts in her life, the artist decided to use these rolls as a 'scroll' to record inner thoughts, feelings and interactions in her everyday life. Acting as a kind of found poetry, the rolls cascade from the machine, spilling onto the floor like thoughts spilling out of a mouth and into the world. The images themselves are small hand-printed 'snippets' of the artist's everyday disappointments, and themselves act as documentation of the mundane intricacies of life.
