Abstract/Artist's Statement

As the food system has evolved it has been forced to include convenience. Changing life styles and big food companies have dictated a switch in expectations from our food. They have made it so that time and energy can be saved when it comes to producing, cooking or eating food. Technology has evolved beside convenience food, to sell or manufacture it and make it more convenient. One of these invention is vending machines. Automated food vending began with the Automat, which served fresh and healthy dishes but has come to dispense food that is mostly considered unhealthy. Vending machines are tools that can changed to increase the amount of healthy food rather than unhealthy food. This project’s research is based around how vending machines can make healthy food more accessible by making it more convenient and abundant.
