Venice Vending Machine
I’m happy to be taking part of the Venice Vending Machine project: an Installation, to be shown at venues in Venice from the 15 to the 30 September 2011.
Vending machines will be installed at each of the two venues and filled with plastic spherical capsules that will each contain a work of art by one of the contributing artists. Visitors to the space will be able to purchase or barter for a token with which to release an orb from the machine.
‘Each sphere represents the light, a world, an artist, a creative seed and will contain an original piece of diverse artwork produced by both emerging and established artists. Through the game of interaction and the inherent chance of the machine, an automatic distributor, an exchange takes place for both the artist and receiver of the art work.’*
The project has been curated by Ann Jordan from Elysium Gallery in Swansea and Marina Moreno from ART-E-MOTION.
