A Year in Revenue proposes an archeology of the formal remnants of late 20th century financial structures and investigates the successive stages of dematerialization born of the late capitalist optimization paradigm. These dematerializations have consequently restructured the built environment and occupational frameworks of finance, radically altering the appearance of the stock market floor; algorithms have replaced floor traders, the stock market floor has been restructured to accommodate computational power, and whole buildings and infrastructural systems have been retrofitted to optimize the flow

of data and capital. A Year in Revenue adopts an archaeological strategy, investigating and cataloging the remnants of those systems that were subsequently rendered obsolete by this phenomenon. The show is composed of a series of installation works, employing strategies of critical reconstruction that examine these physical and conceptual structures in a museological setting presenting a troubling narrative of capitalistic optimization and dematerialization.
