Income Mood shows the variations of the state of mind of a hypothetical character; in particular, his/her feelings are all connected to the markets performances.
Through the tracking in real time of trading prices for international companies, quoted on the main world stock exchanges (according to the data obtained via Yahoo Finance), we can see how every detected variation represents a mood modifier for the character.
If the detection of markets fluctuations generates an output of personal expressions, on the contrary, the lack of market changes leaves our character in a sort of state of global deficiency.
The project highlights the implications of neomercantilism policies in people’s everyday lives.
