    not an installation by _loupe, on Flickr

    EDIT
    I think it would be wrong of me not to provide links for the artists whose work appears in this image and to the gallery where I saw them.
    I have no commercial interest, just seems good manners and possibly a moral or even legal obligation!

    Well observed! This image nicely asserts that art and commerce are well separated indeed.

    And when was the last time anyone has seen a chair at an ATM installation?

    Aha! Paul, you had me fooled, too...there I thought how civilized you all are over there across the pond. Definitely a thought provoking image... The artwork on the wall looks as though it might have been done by a child...so the mind is free to associate all sorts of things with that ATM and more.

    Now ... I have to admit I feel slightly embarrassed, but on closer inspection the cash machine does in fact turn out to be an installation piece ... the ambiguity/irony (of the piece, and of my own reaction) is rather nice though ...
