Vending Machine Dispenses Plates, Which Break as They Fall

 

The Awesomer introduces us to this art exhibit by FudouKamui, a student at the Xi’An Academy of Fine Arts in northwestern China. Pay and the machine will dispense one of the ceramic plates, each of which has a different price. When the plate hits the bottom port, it breaks.

The exhibit is subtly titled “This Is the Proof of Our Stupidity.”

I don’t get it, but perhaps if I buy a few more plates, I will. I mean, eventually, I have to win the game, right?

We used to have those places where you paid a small fee to go in and break stuff with a sledgehammer to relieve stress. This sounds like the lazy man's version.

I wonder if it's a metaphor for the insane and unnecessary human overpopulation, particular in places like India and China. Na...prolly not.

Looks like I could stick my hand through the bottom and be able to catch a falling plate.
Maybe I should go there and try! Checking ... Err, no. At almost $5,000 and 30 hours of travel to fly to Xi'an it's rather out of my league. (I honestly didn't expect it to be *that* expensive.)
