Penny-Dispensing Machine: an Interactive Representation of the Daily Grind

by Lambert Varias

…or the daily crank, as the machine puts it. Says maker Blake Fall-Conroy, “Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage).” Obviously the machine stops doling out money as soon as you stop turning the crank. I think $7 is slightly less than the minimum daily wage here in the Philippines. Then again, in New York $7 will probably only get you what, a movie? Not even?

The penny-dispensing machine measures about approx. 15 x 19 x 72 in. Its wood and plexiglass body houses “custom electronics”, a change sorter and a motor, among other things, all powered by the hand crank. Would you rather turn a crank for 8 hours or do actual work?
