It takes one second for a human to deal in shares. In that time an algorithm will have purchased thousands of shares and sold them again – several times.

RACE TO ZERO is a choreographic close study of the life of financial algorithms. A total experience of a form of life that radically challenge our conception of time, space and body.

How do algorithms see the world? And how should we relate to an economy that moves way beyond our comprehension?

RACE TO ZERO is the second part in Yel Kayés trilogy about the world economy. The first part was ‘Point Omega’ that dealt with the financial crisis.
