Lynn Hershman Leeson, Synthia Stock Ticker, 2000-2002,
Synthia is a virtual character who represents fluctuations
in the stock market online. Her behavior is triggered by the
most recent information on stock prices from NASDAQ,
Dow Jones and Russel 2000, and her mood depends on the
atmosphere at the stock exchange. If prices go up, Synthia
dances about; if they drop, she sits anxiously at her desk.
Synthia is displayed on a plasma screen under a bell glass
of an electronic ticker tape inspired by Thomas Edison’s
design. Edison made a significant improvement to the electric
exchange-rate telegraph by printing Wall Street’s quotations
on a paper tape in a legible format. Synthia takes it all a step
further by personifying the market as an online set of economic
patterns. She is a symbol of the symbiotic relationship between
the market and people.
