The work functions as any vending machine. People are invited to insert money which activates the gadget to draw. Each participant that invests enables the growth of the piece and also the artist's survival.
Art Vending Machine is a comment on value that is affixed to works of art as well as a questioning of authorship in artistic practice. As more stakeholders activate the machine, It becomes a transactional exchange between the artist, the viewer/collaborator and the work.
Participants are invited to become art investors and more importantly to think about the role of such an investment and how it could further enrich the artistic ecosystem.
