Liquidity

Timo Bredenberg

Liquidity examines the meta-structures and language of economics. It centres around figures of speech and sayings related to the concept of fluidity, which are used to naturalise economic phenomena. The visuality of the work, created with photogrammetry, refers to both the video game Pipe Mania (1989) and J.G. Ballard’s science fiction novel The Drowned World (1962). In Bredenberg’s work, Pipe Mania’s innocent game mechanics transform into metaphors for phenomena hidden within complex systems such as tax evasion and money laundering.
