In three recent video installations, Zachary Formwalt focuses on the architecture of OMA’s new Shenzhen Stock Exchange and the Amsterdam stock and commodities exchange by H.P. Berlage. Although our economy is dictated by financial transactions, the activity of trading itself has become increasingly remote, without actual human encounter. The architecture of the two buildings serves as a starting point for a investigation into the limitations of photography to represent global capital and into the interrelationships between financial capitalism and image-making.
