Synthia is a networked sculpture modeled on Thomas Edison’s stock ticker, that personifies changes in the stock market in real time. Instead of ticker tape, the miniaturized stock ticker houses a small monitor that projects the environment of a female character named Synthia. Guided by 2% changes in stock market trading, Synthia reacts in real time to changes in the Down Industrial Average, NASDAQ, S&P 500 and Russell Cap indexes.

This Special Project is presented by Anglim Gilbert Gallery (Booth C2).
