urn-a-matic vend by Darin Montgomery

urn-a-matic series by darin montgomery for FUNERIA®

The urn-a-matic series is an irreverent but endearing look at the funeral industry as well as a commentary on our obsession with consumerism. The vending machine was chosen not only for its sculptural beauty, but also because of its practical nature as a dispensary. It is intended to be a thought provoking and humorous narrative on using everyday objects as funerary containers. The wry humor that is intrinsic to the artist’s work has earned this series an appreciative audience in exhibitions on two coasts, along with Excellence in Mixed Media honors at FUNERIA’s 4th international Ashes to Art® exhibition in 2008.
