How do we as humans beings relate to and navigate in the new value systems, material realities and geographies sub second machine ecologies that financial logic carves out? In this talk Herregraven will discuss her work and practice in which she makes links between trading algorithms and melting ice, latency and trees, panic and submarine cables in order to reflect on the material and daily consequences of global finance.
In her work Femke Herregraven explores which new material base, geographies and value systems contemporary financial technologies and infrastructures carve out. Works exist online and as drawings, prints, sculptures, video and installations. Her work has been presented at Dark Ecology, Serpentine Marathon, Transmediale and recently exhibited at T293 (Rome) Bureau Europa, (Maastricht) V&A (London) Witte de With (Rotterdam) Centre Pompidou (Paris) SMBA (Amsterdam) Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Carroll / Fletcher (London) and Future Gallery (Berlin).
