Antidatamining VIII: Trading Robot Performance

Antidatamining VIII: Trading Robot Performance by RYBN — a panoptic installation in The Global Contemporary. Art Worlds After 1989 @ ZKM :: September 17, 2011 - February 5, 2012.

Engaging finance in its most recent and complex developments, RYBN has undertaken the construction of its own amateur trading bot, designed to invest and speculate on the financial markets. Its decisions are taken with the help of an internal algorithmic intelligence system, and can be influenced by a wide range of external arbitrary parameters. The whole decision system allows the program to foresee the next moves in the markets, while it tries to identify and anticipate the relevant and effective patterns within the financial chaotic oscillations. The performance stops when the robot reaches bankruptcy. Continue reading

Spiral Drawing Sunrise [tr Istanbul]

Spiral Drawing Sunrise, a device for the site specific recording of sunrises by Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum :: September 14-20, 2011; times here :: part of ISEA2011.

Spiral Drawing Sunrise’s main component is a “phototropic car”, a small robotic rover that runs on solar energy, not unlike the carts used by NASA to explore the environments of distant planets. Except that this cart is designed to make observations of a distant body, the sun, in familiar settings, like a public square. It functions as a kind of sun-powered, mobile hour glass: the cart, tight to a pole with a longinsh rope, moves when its panels have collected a given amount of sunlight. And as it continuously deposits sand, the cart leaves behind a patterned spiral trail. Continue reading
