Besancon, France

Around a hundred eggs were filled with paint and loaded into a vending machine. It was installed between the Museum of Modern Art and a mural made for the Bien Urbain Street Art Festival.

Concerned for the look and feel of their city and worried about the ever intensifying gentrification, the anarchists of Besançon often use similar paint bombs to directly speak out against local government-sanctioned street art.

The vending machine offers these improptu weapons for sale, but once purchased, the egg falls and breaks within the machine — preventing its use and creating a generative abstract composition inside.
