Also, here's a picture I took...
I saw this an early sunday morning while out smoking my morning cigarette, as the girl I was staying with asked if it was okay if we didn't smoke in her little apartment, which was totally fine, I much rather prefer a cold air chaser instead of stale, old air. Plus your clothes don't smell nearly as bad as if you smoke inside. But I digress.
I saw this machine, I'm guessing it was some sort of failed video calling system, and I just had to take a picture of it. The sight of it just launched a cascade of images of everything that went into putting that piece of hardware. The planning, the engineering, meetings, the sheer excitement of the ones involved in the project who probably all believed this was going to revolutionize the way humans interact with eachother, and the subsequent disappointment when it turned out to be an utter and complete failure. An object who's only purpose now is to mock their creators by simply existing. If that's not art, then I'd never..
