Artist Statement:


    EquityBot treats twenty-four states of human affect as tradable commodities, ‘investing’ in emotions such as anger, joy, disgust and amazement. It then links these emotions with actual stocks to make investments using a simulated brokerage account. During stock market hours EquityBot generates simple data visualizations that illustrate how the world is feeling alongside the market performance of its emotional equities. In addition to the internet artwork, EquityBot includes a physical sculpture that links to the online artwork.
