portfolio : mikroökonomie

Stephen comments on tourism and the reification of the economy through a social performance work MIKROÖKONOMIE (microeconomics). Stephen co-opts the tourist penchant for documentation but instead of a typical "tourist" pose, Stephen improvises a new vocabulary of stock poses reacting to the bull/bear. The work and poses manifest the "micro" in microeconomics - how the economy is defined be an elite few while every man on the street bears the brunt of those decisions in their everyday lives.
