A young visitor noticed that Daniel Spoerri frequently incorporated meatgrinders into this sculptures and asked whether this was due to an earlier traumatic experience with such a device. In fact, it is the diversity of form exhibited by this piece of kitchen equipment that is, to Daniel Spoerri, so astounding and intriguing (he also collects potato peeling knives and spectacles for the same reason).

These fundamental mechanisms have provided Spoerri with endless fascination and ultimately led him to found »Eat Art«.
