Yesterday is dead and gone

And visibly so in this day-shredding calendar from designer Susanna Hertrich.

The designer describes the Chrono-Shredder as the machine as performer. Chrono-Shredder is a poetic time-object that reminds us of the volatileness of the »now«. As hybrid object with functions similar to those of a calendar and a clock, it shreds every single day in realtime. All that time that is irrevisibly lost gets a tangible existence in form of shredded paper. As time passes by, the tattered remains of the past pile up under the device.
