Where the money is made – Surfaces of algorithmic capital, 2017
Today, artificial intelligence and algorithmic technology allow trading firms to operate faster than our human abilities. The sites depicted in Eline Benjaminsen’s video are not places that we would readily associate with high finance, yet this is where some of the biggest profits are being made today. In her work, Benjaminsen documents the resolutely physical landscapes of an immaterial market and questions the limits of a system that generates profits and value at speeds the human brain cannot comprehend.
Venue: Photoforum Pasquart
