Democracy now finds there can be ample for all, but only if the souvereing fences are completely removed.

Removal Transplant-New York Stock Exchange.1968

FOUR TONS OF PAPER DATA FROM THE FLOOR OF FLOOR OF NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE WAS REMOVED AND TRANSPLANTED TO PARK AVENUE SOUTH WHERE IT WAS HOUSED IN AN AREA DEFINED BY THE SPECIFICATIONS OF A ROOF.

THE SPATIAL LIMITS OF THE CLEARING HOUSE FLOOR DICTATE THE MANNER IN WHICH THIS PAPER RESIDUE ORGANIZES ITSELF. IN THE SAME WAY, A CYCLONE FENCE DIRECTS THE ACCUMULATION OF WIND BLOWN MATTER, THUS FUNCTIONING AS AN AESTHETIC BLOCK. THE PAPER BECOMES FREE-MOVING ARCHITECTURAL FUEL, UNDIRECTED, YET RESPONDING TO THE IMPOSITION OF PRE-EXISTING BOUNDS, THE EXCHANGE FLOOR IS AN ARCHITECTURAL MOLD FOR SYMBOLS REPRESENTING DISTANT LOCATIONS.

TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING A SPAN OF THREE THOUSAND MILES TAKEE PLACE ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE FLOOR. THE RESIDUE AT THE END OF THE DAY CARRIES VESTIGES OF THE DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS: THE POINT AT WHICH BUY ORDERS AND SELL ORDERS HAVE BEEN ISSUED. THOUGH IT LIES DORMANT ON THE FLOOR IT IS CONCEPTUALLY STILL ACTIVE. A SPATIAL TRANSACTION IS IMPLICITLY CONTAINED IN THE MATERIAL; A WEB OF COMPONENTS INTERACTING WITHIN A CONTINENTAL GRID.

AT 2 P.M. THE CLEARING HOUSE FLOOR IS FILLED WHIT THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF STOCK TRANSACTIONS, THE PERMUTATIONS A STOCK HAS UNDERGONE DURING A FOUR HOUR PERIOD. BY REMOVING THIS DATA FROM A GROUND LEVEL AND CARRYING IT UP SIXTEEN STORIES, I AM RAISING THE LEVEL OF RESIDUE THAT WAS ACTIVELY HOUSED ON A LOWER PLANE. THE MATERIAL WILL BE HELD AT THE TOP OF A BUILDING: THE BUILDING FORMS A BASE FOR THE PIECE. THE ROOF IS VIEMED AS A TERMINAL STRATA FOR PASSIVE INFORMATION. THE MANHATTAN SKYLINE BECOMES A TIGHT COMPLEX OF CORE SAMPLING OF VARYING DEPTHS.
