aesthetic tools 4

Dark Pools as an example of a method:

An aesthetic bouncing up against the in-accesible financial phenomena ’dark pool’. By accepting the secrecy and the conceptual opaqueness of the dark pool, we develop a method of ’bouncing’ against the dark surface.

1: Choosing a group of ’experts’.
2: Each expert produces a semantic field.
3: From each semantic field 4 texts are written.
4: The 4 texts of each semantic field are conceptually and formally alike (identitical?) in that they are based on the same list of words.
5: The total of the texts constitute a (fictional?) universe, circumscribing the dark pool.
