The emotional stock market is where happiness, sadness and love can be bought and sold. Emotional data is streamed from twitter, creating a live visualization in the market place. The market responds to real time data from people all over the world, the more people saying they are happy, the more the price goes up. You are invited to come and trade emotional shares in this new work by live artist Max Dovey.
The emotional stock market is a new performance work by Max Dovey. Manipulating social media to create a participatory installation that raises current concerns with society, new media and art. Max is finding new ways to explore online generated content and relate it to new contexts in his performance work.
