AMI CLARKE: ERROR-CORRECTION: AN INTRODUCTION TO FUTURE DIAGRAMS WITH
LOW ANIMAL SPIRITS - A LIVE HFT ALGORITHM TRADING IN WORLD NEWS
Ami Clarke reads from her ongoing script: 'Error-Correction: an introduction to future diagrams' with 'Low Animal Spirits' - a live HFT algorithm trading in world news by Ami Clarke and Richard Cochrane.
'Error-Correction: an introduction to future diagrams (take 7)’ is one in a series of experimental takes of an on-going enquiry into diagrams with a persistent re-writing at its core. The script consists entirely of appropriated texts: contemporary commentary, news items, theory, as well as anecdotal evidence, culminating in an interrelated convergence of many interwoven threads, whereby the voice, through language, is constituted “between someone else’s thoughts and the page’. Take 7 focus’ on materiality, algorithms, and an evolving subjectivity, with a (satirical) nod at “Capitalism and Schizophrenia: Contemporary Visual Culture and the Acceleration of Identity Formation/Dissolution” [sic] by Jonah Peretti – founder of Buzz-feed.
