Paolo Cirio’s work illustrates a global currency through the creative formulation of an equation and trading algorithm for the currency exchange market. (W)orld Currency (2014) addresses the inherent instability of various currencies, as well as the need for a new independent global reserve currency that could potentially empower and unite the world population. The conceptual work is represented by the artistic expression of a mathematical equation and a diagram of the algorithm, suggesting how the value of the currency is calculated and how its liquidity is created and maintained, while an accompanying text explains how the equation works.
