Books, shredder, and (some of them with) televisions
The procedure of this artwork is rather simple and straightforward. The artist shredded pages of Chinese book with a shredder, and allowed the processed scraps to accumulate on floor. The finished slices of paper resemble greatly to the popular folk food noodle in China, thereby the work acquired its name "Culture Noodle". Making allusions to food with the work's title, Song might want to highlight the necessity of books, the literary symbolism for culture, the food for human within spiritual dimension.
