MACHINE: "MTA Monster!"

"MTA Monster!"

Cardboard, Spray paint, Acrylic paint, Electrical tape

As I was feeding my monthly $104 tribute to a ravenous MTA machine last month, I was struck by how much the machine reminds me of my home shredder - so much goes in, so little comes out.  I was inspired to transform my home shredder into an embodiment of the MTA Machine Monster which haunts the dreams of so many impoverished subway commuters.  The Monster was assembled from recycled cardboard, and there is an opening for money to be fed directly into its mouth.  Yes, the shredder still works!
