Flashcrash Unlimited. Animated gif. Loop.
— The artwork is inspired by a closeup of the US stock exchange during the infamous flashcrash of May 6 2010.
The looped animation stands as an ironic reminder of the thousands yet smaller flash crashes that have made their appearance on the financial market; its rough two-dimensional aesthetic, in stark contrast with the pristine realistic background of the WAG white cube where it is displayed, is reminiscent of the flat world of Big Data and algorithmic trading.
