Latency Docet. Detail.
The data driven sculpture is positioned at the centre of the gallery space and connected to a database of on-line available data derived from dark pools (source Finra, the Financial Industry Regulator Authority).
Dark pools, or private financial forums of exchange for trading securities, have been recently made object of large criticism, especially in conjunction with illicit practices of front running and accuses of price manipulation.
A custom code connected to the sculpture searches for patterns from the data and it fires a blend of the four accords of the +– perfume in the physical space, in so recreating an impermanent olfactory experience which tries to recreate a physical bridge between the fluctuation of the markets and the transient condition of human existence.
