A fun way to support the Museum!

This colorful project is a playful way to engage with the idea of constant transformation.

In a rush of air, the Cash Machine happily sucks up your offering of dollar bills and pushes it through a maze of tubes, bells and spinning instruments until it reaches its final collection point. This pneumatic contraption, carefully engineered to provide immediate gratification with sights, sound and lights, comes to life each time a visitor makes a donation.

Who Made This?

Cash Machine was created by Machine Project’s Mark Allen, Tod Kurt and Carlyn Maw. Machine Project is an event space, an informal educational institution and a network of visual artists, scientists, engineers, poets and musicians. Machine Project’s eclectic programming celebrates curiosity and experimentation through workshops, classes, performances and projects ranging from electronics to sewing, pickling to computer programming and poetry to group naps.
