All used materials are the physical result of a series of actions, made in a former garage of the SBB (Europaallee, Zurich) few days before its demolition to make space for the advancement of a new building complex.

In an intervention following the perimeter of three rooms in the former SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) garage, three Forex (Foreign exchange market) graphs are directly transposed on the walls. The graphs on the walls corresponded to the trends of exchange between EUR/USD, EUR/CHF and EUR/CNY over twenty minutes of market. The line of the three graphs then becomes the path for the flame of a soldering torch. The shift is from the abstraction of signs – the line as a graphic reduction imposed by the economic-financial codes – to the physicality of gesture. The inner-walls removed from the SBB garage and installed within the space of Kunstraum Walcheturm in Zurich create a long oblique corridor.
