Michael Goldberg

Michael Goldberg is an artist and lecturer at Sydney College of the Arts who explores the gameplay involved in the world of trading stocks ( His work examines stockmarkets as highly complex organisms although their financial cycles are generally simplified as being either 'boom or bust'.

In fact these cycles arise out of a multitude of personal psychologies and are the evidence of an almost inconceivable number of transactions, or 'face-offs', between buyers and sellers. In reality, markets perform to an elaborate choreography. They unfold daily, minute by minute, second by second into a sequence of arabesques and set moves responding to constantly shifting global algorithms.
