A stock ticker communicates the universal language of a capitalist economy. Its dynamic combinations of symbol and price speak to a wide range of individuals on many levels.

I combine actual symbols from the New York Stock Exchange with imaginary ones to form phrases based on music, literature, aphorisms, and other well-loved expressions.
