Complex Financial Instruments
by Hope, Claire
- Taking Place
Complex Financial Instruments raises questions about power, systems of belief and contemporary subjectivity.
Footage of the progressive conversion of old farm buildings is inter-cut with images of corporate new builds, archaeological remains, degraded sites and natural land. On the soundtrack we hear a business meeting debate about the realisation of a fantasy landmark building project. The visual material shifts between stills and self-consciously edited video, which becomes problematically intertwined with an increasingly absurd conversation.
