Leah Harper: Complimentary
Not a rose, not a candy, but even better, it’s a Compliment for you, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Artist Leah Harper turns the everyday vending machine (with a long tradition of spewing out gumballs and tiny toys) into a Compliment dispensing marvel. Harper’s interactive art piece, “Complimentary,” will be installed in the Hudson River Museum Lobby. Turn the knob on the dispenser and out comes your compliment in a plastic toy capsule, for free! Compliments are all about giving and receiving, and visitors also have the option to give a Compliment and add to the words Harper gathers from submissions and online surveys to create future installations. A container next to the dispenser lets you dispose of your plastic capsule for recycling. Looking ahead, she says, “I want to do more work that makes people happy!” Compliments Do Just That. Her favorite compliment to date, “If you were a potato, you would be a sweet potato.” Samples from the Compliment Dispenser: You Are the Mercedes-Benz of Caviar! You’ve Certainly Gotten Enough Beauty Sleep! That Smile Looks Beautiful on You!
