Artistic Statement  

A stock ticker communicates the universal language of a capitalist economy. Its dynamic combinations of symbol and price speak to a wide range of individuals on many levels. I blend the real New York Stock Exchange symbols with imaginary ones to form phrases based on literature, musical lyrics, or well-loved expressions.
