NOBBY 1997. "A commission to make a portrait of a local lifeboat man as a collection box for Jersey’s maritime museum. He rattles the money in his tin as you approach, and nods and puffs his pipe when you give him a coin."

Tim Hunkin at Novelty Automation repairing Cycle Pong! We are open this Thursday from from 12 to 8pm!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX4mx6W1MlU Roger Waters mentions with wonder the pyrotechnic tissue paper sheep early on in this film and laments he can't do it again.
Genuine bottle of Amazon employee urine and an employee product scanner at the Museum of Neoliberalism. I was promoted to post these after seeing Amazon claiming it was a myth via their relentlessly embarrassing AmazonNews twitter account.

As you can see in the last slide they're claiming this despite the fact there are leaked memos from Amazon managers complaining about bottles of urine and bags of s**t being found in warehouses.

I should point out, in case it's not obvious, that this isnt about workers being gross, its about workers having little choice but to do things like this due to the terrible working conditions and high pressure work targets that are enforced by Amazon.

I co-curated the museum with Gavin Grindon and this display has since been updated with a miniature working conveyor belt generously built for us by the brilliant Tim Hunkin at Novelty Automation. He's also built his own a satirical Amazon machine which is well worth checking out.

The museum is currently closed but will hopefully open later this year when we stop having to worry about this pandemic which you might have heard about

Every arcade's got Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, but if you've got a hankering for something a lil bit quirkier —say, a "Pet or Meat" or a "Crankenstein"—pop into Novelty Automation, London's wackiest arcade. https://greatbig.is/2Q2Vt05

Massive thanks to Tim Hunkin of Novelty Automation for generously building us this miniature conveyor belt, its the most reliable piece of technology in the museum.
