status: collection of Bruce Bettinger

This piece is an unadorned black steel box, with a dollar switch on the front surface.   A small green light glows.  No information about the piece's purpose is given, other than an image indicating the correct way to insert currency.

If a viewer inserts a bill, the machine reads it and, if valid US currency, ingests it.   The green light goes off and a red light comes on. There is a loud gear-motor noise , a pause, some more noise.

Thank You Very, Very Much detail; click for an enlargementAfter a few seconds thin strips of money drop through a chute in the bottom of the piece and flutter to the ground at the feet of the viewer.  When all of the bill has been processed and returned, the machine resets.

The piece has two keyholes for hanging, and requires 120 volts.
