Vinyard’s intricate machines find international audience

Jordan Vinyard gets very animated when she talks about her creations.

“It’s a piece that consists of 20 smaller machines with prosthetic silicone cast cups,” Vinyard said.

“When people walk up to them, they’ve got little sensors that trigger motors which push upward onto plexiglass, stick to it and then suck away.”

Her grin turns devious.

“It makes a really disgusting sucking sound.”
