Jesse Greenberg

Jesse Greenberg writes in his artist statement, "If today’s ATM was yesterday’s water well, then our debit card is the water bucket dipped into our financial pools. These kiosks have existed through time. They are totems to humans functions and portals for interaction, as opposed to grand statues and monuments, which record our achievements and memorialize events from times past. The kiosk is a functional machine sculpted for our actions and necessities."
His works stand as "kiosks" to other worldly interaction; his art inviting the viewer to touch, as with his "touchables", evoking a scenery of candy colored space ships and buttoned maps.
