UNorJUSTNESS A : Finance
Audiovisual installation for one visitor
The installation UNorJUSTNESS | A : Finance has 3 parts, which are brought in opposition to each other, visually and acoustically. There are shown three forms of work, of earning money, of „making“ money:
- 1 – Worker (Palm Oil Plantation, Indonesia)
- 2 – Trader (Commodities Trading, Switzerland)
- 3 – Investor (CopyTrader Promotion, worldwide)
Each of the three examples appear to be independent of one another, but in the globalised world they are all directly connected: the labourer produces commodities which the faraway trader deals in using money supplied by worldwide investors.

Videos 1 and 2 are positioned opposite one another as large projections, and together form an audio-visual interstice. The suspended projection panes are stimulated by transducers, and so also function as loudspeaker-surfaces. Only one visitor at a time can pass between the two worlds to reach the third video with its headphones, where they are then made an enticing offer. The visitor is supposed to be enlisted as an investor who, by effortlessly copying – as a 'copy jack' – the transactions executed by the supposed professionals, can basically earn money in their sleep.
