Volatile Prophesies

2015 | Single Channel Video with Sound | 08:30 (Loop)

A star field has been replicated with coins from all active currencies today. The camera takes a "random walk" path through the constellations - with each coin spinning in a suspended state of probability. The soundtrack includes fragments of voices in six languages whose words originate from a sentiment analysis dictionary from finance, used in algorithmic processing of human emotions.
