Packaging and delivering the capsules...

After an early drive to Moorabbin this morning (thanks Gavin!) to visit John from Candy Kid Vending, the capsules for the exhibition were picked up and so began the rather arduous task of packaging 10 capsules for each of the 51 participating artists.


First order of business: getting the labels ready.


Opening the box! Felt like Christmas, only grittier, more 'independent self-funded arts project'-like and infinitely more exciting.


The capsules are made from a sturdy plastic that opens when you compress the sides of the clear half. It needs a bit of force, but we figured it out in the end. The colours that arrived were mostly red, green and orange but there are several blue ones in the mix, so if you get one count yourself lucky!

Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
