smoking machine’ by kristoffer myskja, 2007 the mechanical sculptures of norweigan artist kristoffer myskja are all somewhat strange, but the strangest of all is the ‘smoking machine’, which literally smokes cigarettes. the artwork features a small device made from brass that most prominently features a ramp of cigarettes. each cigarette is gravity fed onto a holder, where it is lit and slowly smoked by an air valve that is electrically driven. as the gears turn, the cigarette slowly disappears until only the filter is left. the machine then ejects the cigarette and ashes onto the floor below, loading the next one into the holder.

  1. Looks like the account behind kristoffermyskja.com has exceeded it’s bandwidth limit… in laymans terms, it’s been fruited!

  2. Wonderful. A purpose built machine (not incidental mind you), but *specifically* constructed to deliberately pollute the environment (both with butts and cigarette smoke). Something to be proud of.

  3. @drmaybe – all art is pollution if you look at like that…
