What if our psychological needs could be heat-sealed
and packaged up like candy in a vending machine?


On the surface, we’re rich. But deep down, we’re poor - we’re more stressed, depressed, anxious and alone than ever before. A twist on the world of consumables and vending machines, Intangible Goods is an ongoing project by Elizabeth Commandeur & Mark Starmach. Featuring bags of ‘Belonging’, bars of ‘Bravery’ and more, the project hopes to reimagine the link between our consumption habits and our deeper psychological needs, while further normalising mental health.

To break down stigma and isolation, we are helping raise awareness and understanding of mental illness. [Intangible Goods] is a great way of encouraging more people to think about this important topic and hopefully assist those in need.
