Free Thought Bubble

interactive vending machine
54 x 21 x 19 inches

from Vend-to-Own: consumer art series

Free Thought Bubble features a hand-blown glass top that looks like a cloud, a cartoon thought bubble, or a brain. Inside, each capsule contains a scrap of paper on which I scrawled random thoughts — anything from my personal laundry tips, to a description of my mood at the time.

This is the only vending machine that I have made that does not require any money to use. A simple turn of the knob gives the viewer my two cents… for free.
