BASHIBA transforms real-time data streams into immersive environments, in the realms of business and culture. By visualizing complex data sets through metaphoric language, formerly indiscernible relations, developments, and risks become perceivable. BASHIBA Panorama, presented here, shows the opening of the Standard & Poor market index of the US stock market during the Black Monday of the 24th of August 2015. The changes in the Standard & Poor Index, the volatility and anxiety of the market are expressed in ocean waves, cloud transformations, wind and sun strength, thus forming a single, moving image. We are not outside observers of this ocean landscape, but are catapulted over it in a flight pattern, whose height and speed equally represent market performance, and remind us in an emotional way what flying above stormy water could feel like. In this way we enable the viewer to have an emotional experience of market risk (systematic risk).
