Oh yeah, because turning the crank on the machine isn't an actual job.


It used to be, but then it was outsourced.

What a stupid argument. Let's say the machine spit out a dollar every minute of cranking. After about 15 minutes of cranking, I'd be bored or tired and stop, regardless of the fact that it's spitting out the equivalent of a $120K salary.

It's a sculpture. It's meant to elicit an emotional response. Stop thinking of it as an "argument".

It's meant to elicit an emotional response to push an agenda, hence it very much is an "argument."

It's a bad argument because why don't we just let the machine spit out dollars instead of pennies? People will soon realize that a lot of jobs make far less doing much harder work than turning a crank!


So if it makes people think about how little minimum wage really is wouldn't that mean it's a good argument? I don't get it.

What school did you go to that taught you sculptures ever constitute arguments?

Anything that is used to push an agenda is an argument, whether it be in the form of literature or sculpture.

Yes, because it's an appalling crime for people to live and not do so in rags, living solely on check to check, and without any other cent to their name. It's a naive wish but I do wish everyone could live without worry of bills and where their rent money is coming from next. I'm not suggesting everyone should be rich just that I really hate knowing there are poor people out there who can't get by or barely can.

Artwork, which a sculpture is, is very capable of making an argument.
