This painting is my own visualization of Joshua Klein’s vending machine that he designed to teach crows to take a coin and deposit it into a machine that in return gave them a peanut.

"The goal of this project is to create a device that will autonomously train crows. So far we've trained captive crows to deposit dropped coins they find on the ground in exchange for peanuts. The next step is to see how quickly we can get wild crows to learn the system, and then how quickly they can learn it from each other."
