Art-O-Mat is a company that has been â€œvending art and culture since 1997.â€ The company converts vintage cigarette machines into vending machines that sell small pieces of art for around $5.
The vintage style of the machines would be enough to make any space more hip, and the fact that these Art-o-mat's deal art, is even cooler.
Implications - Art is increasingly being commodified and made available to not only the upper classes. Art is being sold in small, on-the-go formats that appeal to the busy, but culturally-inclined, consumer. This trend also shows the continued popularity of vintage and retro designs, especially in now-simple technologies like vending machines or juke boxes.
