2020 / Work in Progress
The seed for this long-term initiative was planted during a ten-month residency in New York's Financial District in 2009/10 and is evolving since.
The Wall Street Project (TWSP) is based on my proposition to recognize Financial Capitalism as the preeminent sculptor of language, materials, and social structures, and to analyze and counter its form-giving methods both on a micro- and macro level. To do so I am combining my own (photographic) observation of New York’s Financial District and my research into the global financial industry with past and current theories in the social and political sciences.
