Stock Exchange Sculptures

Luke Jerram macht wieder Datenvisualisierung in Skulpturen. Vor ein paar Monaten hatte er das Seismogram des Erdbeben in Japan auf nem 3D-Drucker ausgegeben und dann in Glas gegossen, jetzt macht er dasselbe mit den Daten der Wallstreet und vom Dow Jones-Index.

Investigating the rotation of data, these sculptures were made using graphs of the New York Stock Exchange (Composite 2004-2012) and the Dow Jones (Industrial Average 1980-2012). The crash of 2009 is clearly visible. The artworks were made to contemplate the meaning of the current global financial crisis and to consider different ways of visualizing data.

Created initially in wood, the sculptures are currently being cast in glass for a show at the Heller Gallery in NYC, this June. Once created in glass the sculptures should present the stock exchange as fragile transient forms.
