Lianzhou Foto Festival, 01 Dec 2018 - 03 Jan 2019

….

Almost exactly 10 years ago, the financial institution Lehman Brothers was going down, starting the financial crisis of 2008. In 2013 my Trades series was trying to seize some aspects of the intensity and mystery of the trading activity on the bank’s shares on the New York stock exchange while it was plummeting.

Part of the Trades series’s lightboxes will be exhibited in Lianzhou foto festival as 2018 comes to an end.

Il y a presque exactement 10 ans, l’institution financière Lehman Brothers s’écroulait sur les marchés, sonnant les débuts de la crise financière de 2008. En 2013 ma série Trades tentait de saisir un peu de l’intensité et du mystère de l’activité des marchés financiers sur le titre de la banque Lehman Brothers alors qu’il plongeait.

Une partie des caissons lumineux de la série Trades sera exposée au festival Lianzhou foto alors que l’année 2018 se termine.

就在 10 年前,金融机构雷曼兄弟 (Lehman Brothers) 破产,由此引发了 2008 年的金融危机。
2013年,在纽约证券交易所银行股暴跌时,我的 Trades 系列尝试从一些角度捕捉高强度的交易活动,窥探其中的奥秘。

在 2018 年即将结束之际,Trades 系列的部分灯箱片将在连州摄影节上展出。

Trades, new work about financial markets

New images from the new work "Trades" are now visible on the portfolio website.
Trades
is a group of various graphical representations af financial market data. The resulting pictures show the very high intensity of the financial activity, its flux, and some recurring patterns due to machines that now control the majority of financial decisions on the markets (algorithmic trading). Historical tick by tick trading data is used as a source to create a point cloud rendered with a specific point of view. 
Part One of  Trades series is made of 7 large size lightboxes representing the 7 last days of the Lehman Brothers stock on the US equities market from September 9 to 19th, 2008.
