Credit (Retail Display nr.2) is a video that depicts a virtual sculpture. It also contains a text piece that has been placed on the sculpture. The text can be described as a lyrical exploration into the idea of space within the context of financial capital. Not from an analytical point of view but a sentimental one. As the experience of living inside structures that are interwoven with a financial institution. The text piece is a part of a longer series that tries to examine the interpenetration of financial systems and the body. Which is to say, to explore a kind of emotional reading of the lived experience of living within the current paradigm of material organization.

The camera circles around the sculpture and zooms in on the text so that the text piece can be read. It is therefore a virtual sculpture, a text piece and a video all in one.
