The work of the artist combines a real-time LED display of the world stock index with the ancient Greek lament “When I forget, I am glad”, which unfolds into a spatial composition triggered by the singing of the a cappella choir “Pleiades”. Here, the voices of the female choir, which sing of forced migration and the search for a better life, contrast with the ongoing information flows of the capital markets.
