Hickey Machine

Turn dial, press button

This curiosity piece was created for a charity fundraising event. Users adjusted an intensity knob which ranged from “gentle nibble” to “2 weeks in a turtleneck” before selecting a love bite pattern and pressing the “go” button.

 

Cautious visitors debated about what the effects of the machine would be, while adventuresome visitors found out for themselves.
