Art-O-Mat

Yeah Art-O-Mat!!!

Is it kinetic art? Well...kinda sorta. From their site:

What is an Art*o*mat?
Since 1997, Art*o*mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. Currently, there are 64 active machines in museums and various locations throughout the country.

What do you get from an Art*o*mat?
The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. Ker-plunk! What an easy way to become an art collector.


I was in the MOCA in LA (the one down in Japantown) and they have a machine in the shop there. Very cool...we bought 3 pieces. None of them are kinetic, but that's okay, they're cool nonetheless. Something to work towards...kinetic Art-O-Mat pieces!
