    Capital rely on algorithms to manipulate markets, their effects are everywhere yet is hard to see them immediately, given the scale of time and fabricated complexity in which accumulation and exchange is performed at high frequency scale. The patterns produced by their activity are testimony of the behavior of financial markets, and unlike them, these patterns aren't sacred or untouchable. They can be used to generate other forms of wealth, like music.

    Patterns of market crashes caused by high frequency trading were printed on transparency paper, put on a computer screen and drawn into music software. The waveforms transferred were used to create some music patterns and beats compiled in 3 different tracks included in a 10” vinyl record titled Wealth Transfer.

    Tracks:
    1. 010 Flash Crash
    2. 012 The Knightmare
    3. 013 The Tweet Crash

    "Wealth Transfer" debut June 27th, 2013 at the Dataslöjd Summer Show in Kulturlagret, Gothenburg.

  2. F.A.T. GOLD: Five Years of Free Art & Technology
    Curated by Lindsay Howard
    April 1–20, 2013

    "The free software and arts communities are filled with people motivated not just by money but by the act of creation and a drive to make meaningful, or at least functional, contributions to society," writes F.A.T. Lab co-founder Evan Roth in his recent essay, Artist Hacker: From Free Software to Fine Art. Inspired by the philosophy put forth by Roth, Eyebeam hosted a panel on Thursday April 4 from 7:00pm–8:30pm called "Artists as Hackers". The discussion brought together Roth and F.A.T. Fellows Aram Bartholl, Tobias Leingruber, James Powderly, and Addie Wagenknecht, moderated by Christiane Paul, for a look at how hacker culture has influenced a new generation of artists.

  3. What if p2p culture was equal. What if these sites had been designed to for girls? The goal of GIRLS vs _root is to present an experience on websites typically dominated by male contributors. Currently the add-on works by replacing every username on sites such as github.com with a female username (example: Sarah212) and female avatar. Additionally, Pirate Bay becomes 'Princess Bay" and the typical breast laden-porn ads while searching are replaced ads for 'David Beckham for H&M'. To contribute code visit: github.com/wheresaddie

  4. Dominique Moulon a déniché via F.A.T Lab un projet NSFW (et artistique) : les austro-américains Pablo Garcia & Addie Wagenknecht ont demandé à des sexcamers (sex + webcam) de poser d'après des tableaux de nus célèbres. Une manière de questionner les notions de beauté et d’art majeur.
