五十年代的梅窩涌口街一帶是島民以物易物的重要墟市,鄰里從趁墟間「打牙骹」建立起社區網絡。<交心販賣機>是個故事交換平台,藝術家化身營業員與街坊交流,將8個本地生意模式和「客人」的故事化為「貨物」和「貨幣」。參加者通過交換故事,聆聽鄰里與墟市的故事,也留下自己的想法,藉以探討墟市經濟背後的價值和自給自足的可能性。

“Dialogue Machine” is a story exchange platform that builds upon the past flourishing street market and barter culture of Mui Wo’s Chung Hau Street. Transformed into sellers, organising artists interact with communities to explore the value of the past rural market and bring up conversation towards a localized sustainable economy. In this market, 8 different interviews of local business model collected by artists and those shared by participants are respectively used as goods and currency, allowing visitors to share and listen to others stories through story trading. Come meet us and engage in a discussion with Mui Wo’s neighbourhood to weigh the value of the barter economy and its future as a self-sustained model.
