The Turkish company Pugedon has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.

Watch the machine in action here.

Putting the chicken to good use. Thoughts @rejinl


Wait, is that a sports thing?

#FunFact: @ArtBoxNY has dispensed over 600 chick magnets to people all over NY (and beyond!) since it went live a year ago.

Before the Queens Museum closed for the summer, I had to choose whether to move ArtBoxNY to another location, or leave it there to be put in storage. I decided to leave it there and give the project a Summer vacation, so I could build up some inventory before the grand reopening in October.

Now only one week later, a month worth of refills are ready, and I miss my little vending machine. (What was I thinking, giving up access to my favorite project?!)

Maybe this would be a good time to pick up another machine and launch the ArtBox2?

Sadly, @ArtBoxNY will be going into storage while the Queens Museum is closed for renovation this Summer. Be sure to visit before 6/3 to stock up on the fun-sized art! Or buy online here if it’s a chick magnet/mini artist’s book emergency.
We’ll see you in October -with an expanded selection of little books- at the bigger, better Queens Museum. (Click through for more views of the expansion project, as well as info on the museum’s history.)

How Coca Cola used Vending Machines to Try and Unite the People of India and Pakistan

This should really be called "How Coke uses Technology to White Wash its Brand."
“Coke gave out 10,000 cans of soda during the campaign, which is part of the brand’s larger mission to associate its product with happiness. “Coke has always been a brand that’s about positivity and optimism, and we’re always talking about how we can provoke just a little bit more happiness in the world.”
Really!?
For more info on how Coke spreads happiness throughout the land, check out The Campaign to Stop Killer Coke

We stopped by the Queens Museum today and got to check out Rejin Leys’ Art Box project in the lobby. For 50 cents we got a mini-zine!
