    • MoneyLab - Erin Taylor - Mobile Money and the ‘Social Good’ of Financial Globalization

      MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives Session 4: Mobile Money Erin Taylor: Mobile Money and the ‘Social Good’ of Financial Globalization Conference Day 1 (21 March 2014) After decades of mixed results from microfinance initiatives, mobile money has the potential to provide a portfolio of financial tools to the world’s poorest people by building on existing infrastructure, reducing transaction costs of service delivery, and providing more reliable ways of identifying financial customers. Yet mobile money is not just ‘microfinance’: it is a private good that incorporates individuals into a global financial system – often for the first time. Drawing upon a case study of Haiti as well as global data, Taylor teases apart the private and public properties of mobile money to address the historical and economic implications of incorporating everyone around the globe into one global financial system. She contrasts mobile money on the demand side (as a tool that frees people to build their own networks and economic security) with mobile money on the supply side (as a device for surveillance, marketing, and public goods provision). Taylor uses the term ‘social goods’ to describe how, as development and market ideology collide, private goods and public goods are taking on each other’s properties. Finally, Taylor argues that socio-economic development and global finance, when objectified in mobile money, lose their distinction.

              WARNING TO THOSE WITH PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY OR OTHER NERVOUS DISORDERS - THIS VIDEO CONTAINS FLASHING LIGHTS. 'Cotton Belt Dreams' is a site-specific light installation by Erin Taylor. It consist of three 'Dreammachines,' a stroboscopic flicker device that can induce a dream-like state while awake. The 'Dreammachine' was originally conceived by Brion Gysin, Ian Sommersville and William S. Burroughs. The 'Dreamachine' is viewed with the eyes closed. It produces flashes of light at a frequency of eight to thirteen pulses per second. This frequency synchronises with alpha brain waves, stimulating the optic nerve. 'Cotton Belt Dreams' utilizes not only the internal visual experience but also the transformational patterns of light created by the 'Dreammachine.' This project was installed in the abandoned Cotton Belt Freight Depot. 'Cotton Belt Dreams' was created as a part of Artica, an annual urban arts festival in St. Louis, Missouri, October, 2011. The project received partial funding from Artica in the form of a 'Vessel Award.' Thank you to Artica and all those who assisted with the project and participated in the festival.
