Over a period of 120 days, Marleine Chedraoui created a daily collection of texts from article headings. The articles are those suggested by an internet provider upon the opening of a new tab in the browser. Out of the collection of such text over a single day, Chedraoui developed a one-sentence collage. All 120 one-sentence collages were bound into a tear-off block.

The tear-off block is exhibited in a vitrine. Throughout the run of the exhibition, the curator tears off one sheet at a time before the public, each of which is then framed and hung on the wall of the exhibition space.

The project was funded by a scholarship from the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
