This Art Installation Has a Message

This Machine Has a Soul is an art installation inspired by a two-year, community-led budgeting process called participatory budgeting, during which neighborhood residents decide how tax money should be spent. The installation is at 4335 Thompson Court in the Swansea neighborhood, and will stay up for five days beginning Thursday, August 16. “I hope this will stay in people’s minds as the coolest art installation they’ve ever seen," says Evan Weissman, founder of Warm Cookies of the Revolution, which kick-started the project. "If they learn stories from residents and what participatory budgeting is about, that would be rad."
