Coin switch, dollar switch, speech electronics;
Status: collection of Patricia Correia
Fare is a beat-up metal box with large bolts all over it, closed with a big padlock. Mounted on the face of the piece are quarter acceptor and a dollar bill acceptor plates. If a quarter is inserted, it is dropped onto the floor through a chute in the bottom of the device and the piece says “Fuck you!” If a dollar is inserted, the piece keeps it and says “Thank you!” Fare is wall mounted using keyholes, and requires a hardwood floor or other hard surface for the quarter to land on. Also requires 120v power.
