Cashpoint

One of the more unusual phone calls we've received: "There's this German installation artist called Wolfgang and he's coming out to Newcastle and he's got this work called cashpoint and it's like an ATM stuck in a window on a second storey of an old building and it will be randomly dispensing $5 during the Back to the City festival - and we need a carpenter to help build the casing and install it."

Come again? Whatever, sounds crazy, we like Wolfgangs and we'll do it.

And how they described it was exactly that - here's Cashpoint, in the top window of the Lockup Cultural Centre in down town Newie. And our twins ended up being at the right place at the right time one afternoon and got them selves a $5 note!
