Orlan - Le Baiser De L'artiste (The Kiss of the Artist) (1976)
"Body Artist" Orlan (one name) made a slot machine that looked like her (nude) body and placed herself behind it. Folks could but 5 francs into the slot at the top and it would drop into a little pile of coins where her crotch would be. As a reward she gave the viewer a nice smooch. Later she would give up public smooching and instead turn to public presentation of her own surgeries. 1976.
