Projet de diplôme, ECAL 2018


par Bastien Gomez

«Ethereal» evokes the omnipotence of an irrational market economy, sacralized and disconnected from the real world. This work, presented as a book, highlights the opaque and confiden-tial environment of high finance and trading floors, in a climate of impunity that still persists 10 years after the crisis of 2008. In this abstract and immaterial universe, my images interpret from  a narrative point of view the quasi-fictional melancholic daily life of European traders, buyers and sellers of anticipations, in a time of computerized and dehumanized trading.
