Milk, 2014.

This piece of work attempts to graphically re-interpret economic data in a more representative approach. The economic crisis has been a major concern of popular culture over recent years, and is a constant sticking point in the mainstream media. However, it seems that financial institutions and concepts are not widely understood and are presented only as an abstract fear for the average man or woman. In this work I assigned a stock market to each of the four vessels in the image. In this piece I focussed on the FTSE100, the Dow Jones, the DAX and the Nikkei 225. Throughout the 52 images the levels of milk change according to the data collected at the end of each trading week throughout 2012.
