A Guide to Smoking Positions, 2010, paper

This miniature pamphlet introduces the novice to some basic hand and body postures for various social situations, the emphasis of this volume is "cool handling". Insert Coin Here seems an appropriate outlet for this guide as cigarette vending machines have been dispensing "torches of freedom" since the 1950's.

"I am a long time admirer of smoking culture and the style of personal cigarette handling."

- Tim Fleming (The Founder) & non-smoker

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.
