The Venice Vending Machine ( DISPENSING FREE ART )project is a “collaborative, participatory, inclusive live art public installation”, conceived by Venetian artist Marina Moreno. Its aim is to question the role and the value of Art in our society, whilst aiming to promote emerging artists alongside some famous and established ones. It creates an intriguing game for the participants who feel compelled to enjoin and involve themselves in a dialogue that the artist Marina creates in posing the question:

“How Do You Value Art?”

Since the first Venice Vending Machine installation, it has involved over 250 artists from all over the world and has attracted professionals such as curators, art historians and art collectors while extending the possibility of an encounter with people that normally would not be interested in “Art”.

The Venice Vending Machine Edition 5 will run from the 14th to the 22nd of October 2017 from 11.00 a.m. to 17.30 p.m.
@ the Giardini della Marinaressa (Seychelles Pavillion) Riva dei Sette Martiri Venice
Private view @ Palazzo Mora, Venice on the 14th October time TBC.

how sweet it is - bldging fence few days back 80' of it 6' high in 8' secitons - not bad for a guy almost 80 and living with cancer - terribly sore back caused by hole in spine/cancer - hope all goes well today with markings and radiation

here i am a week back in backyard tearing down fence i built 25 years ago and with Helene's help building a new one in 8' sections on the flat then lifitng into place and topping with squared lattice attachement - now all up
including the trellises that i hand make from cedar strips cut from 1x6" by 8' NB cedar boards

great to have learned/developed these building skills - making our homes beautiful with creative designs hand build by HELENE and I - a big deal for us - i.e. it's like 'living art' 

so many people think art is something on a board hanging on a wall but in fact it's in our everyday lives - living among beauty is living among art i.e. aint' that grand folks

ok off the get my cancer radiation markings .... then 5 days of intense radiation - to kill spinal cancer development - hope all goes well and i get at least another 5 years of life

as said in ALICEinWONDERLAND 'so much to do so little time'
