ADM XI is an independent research platform for experimental algorithmic trading engineering. The novelty and the singularity of its approach lays on the exploitation of the artist legendary vision and know-how, to create innovative and counter-intuitive strategies of investment and speculation. These uncanny strategies challenge the neoclassical economics dogma. The platform gave birth to a collection of heretic, irrational and experimental operating trading algorithms. These algorithms are released to compete with each other on a marketplace hosted and organized by RYBN.ORG.
Within this contest, benefits are no longer driven by the prices and other economic instruments, but rather, by living organisms – soil, plants, bacteria ; by supraterrestrial rules – where they environmental, astronomical, astrological ; or by ancient or by forbidden ancient knowledges – esoteric, magic, geomancy, …
All trading algorithms follow their own non mercantile and obsessive logic : some attempt to produce a total and irreversible chaos, while others try to influence the market prices to make it look like a given geometrical shape, while others tries do saturate the market with non human affects.
Participants to the ADM XI platform are : b01, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Femke Herregraven, Brendan Howell, Martin Howse, Nicolas Montgermont, Horia Cosmin Samoila, Antoine Schmitt, Marc Swynghedauw, Suzanne Treister.
ADM XI is part of the Antidatamining series, initiated in 2006. It is the third – and final – part of RYBN’s trilogy on algorithmic finance initiated with ADM 8 (2011) and continued with ADM X, The Algorithmic Trading Freakshow (2013).
ADMXI is curated by Inke Arns, and is co-produced by Jeu de Paume (Paris), with the support of Labomedia and Espace Multimedia Gantner.
