Quote Machine

Examining how we read and write in small, digestible formats these days – via text, IM, and tweets – Taiwanese designer Alice Wang is emphasizing the preciousness of the written word with her “Quote Vendors”. Her full-scale vending machines distributes quotes from iconic books, delicately rolled-up in small, sealed glass bottles. Wang hopes that the quotes will slow down readers a bit, and inspire them to delve further into the books and authors.
