Vending machines are like giant ad mediums. As a result, it makes sense to enhance the experience and create something consumers will remember. Typically, this means a giant billboard. However, in this case, this vending machine is an art medium. Although we don't have too much information on the origin of this picture, it appears to be a beverage dispenser.

Implications - The artistic soda machine looks absolutely spectacular in all white with a graffiti-esque design in black. Vending machines are usually meant to blend in with their surroundings, not stand out. By making the vending machine artistic and edgy, it may attract more consumer attention and therefore more business to the company that owns it.
