A one of a kind project that turned an ordinary slot machine into an extraordinary art piece.

Starting with an IGT S+ slot machine from the 90’s, Moon Man evolved into what you see today. Hand crafted metalwork, custom slot reels, and hand painted sides.

The work was inspired by cartoons and movies of the 1920’s-40’s. The “porthole” design and use of metal is a homage to this early sci-fi and anthropomorphic characters capture the flavor of the era.
