Where the money is made
Footprints in the Valley
The work of Eline Benjaminsen (NO, 1992) deals with the challenge of perceiving market processes through photographic follow-the-money narratives that combine prints, video and text in mixed media installations.
Concerned by how the lacking visuality of socio-economic processes effects our ability to engage with them, her projects investigates the potentiality in imagery to enable us to observe such processes clearer. In 2017 she graduated from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (Department of Photography) with the project Where the money is made - Surfaces of algorithmic capital about the infrastructure of algorithmic stock trading. The project was awarded the Steenbergen Stipendium (2017) and received multiple other nominations. She collaborates with a variety of platforms, from researchers and activists to the financial press. The latest exhibits of her work include Stroom (NL), Art Rotterdam (NL), Lianzhou Foto Festival (CN), FOTODOK (NL), Heden (NL) and Krakow Photomonth (PL).
