Today's CO2 Spot Price (2009)



Installation charting the daily price fluctuations of CO2 emission allowances in the European Union from July to September 2009. The magnetized lettering system was manually updated every day European energy markets were open for duration of the exhibition, reflecting the daily spot price for CO2 emission permits. This work was comprised of a flexible magnetic numbering system mounted on the facade of Maison des Arts Georges Pompidou, Cajarc. CO2 price data came from the European Energy Exchange.
